Also known as absinthe wormwood and green ginger, common wormwood is a perennial herb found in Europe and North America.

While the plant is considered an invasive weed to some, it is also planted to keep pests away from other plants. In fact, the name wormwood is a reference to its long history of use as a vermifuge and natural insect control agent.

Wormwood is a perennial plant in the aster family with a natural range that includes parts of Europe, Africa and Asia, as well as eastern North America. The prolific spread of the herb is due to its self-seeding habit and its ability to thrive in rocky, uncultivated soil.

Although the plant is considered toxic, wormwood has a long history of use as a bitter flavoring agent for various beverages. It was commonly used to make English mead and, until hops came into the picture in the 19th century, it was used in beer-making. Today, it is still used to flavor absinthe and vermouth. Wormwood is also an ingredient in herbal bitters.
