      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).
