        Could someone tell me what rue is and where I can find it. I also need to know where I can find powdered wormwood?

        I was wondering why the Tick Preventative Powder is not to be used around pregnant women & pets.

        Has anyone tried this on their dog?

        Thanks, Stormie

        Wormwood can be found in leaf or root form at any decent health food store (not your local vitamin shoppe, a real health food store ) It should never be used by pregnant women due to it's high concentrations of Thujone. It is also an Emmenagogue (meaning it brings on menstrual flow).

        We have used it successfully on our dogs without issue. (Btw, I "powder" wormwood in the blender).
