common wormwood

Wormwood, artemisia the herb

As the most important ingredient of absinthe , the one that sets it apart from other drinks and gives it it's name, is wormwood. It seems sensible to include a section about the herb itself, particularly Artimisia Absinthium or common wormwood. Which apart from being a rather pretty bush is very easy to grow, if not obtain.
