Commonly found in herbal texts and other documentation as Artemisia absinthium, or more commonly as absinthe wormwood, Wormwood originates in parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. In these regions where it is native, Wormwood powder has seen a long history of use in keeping away pests and insect larvae, and has been used indoors as a repellant for fleas and moths.
