We are currently transitioning to a new label for our single and combination extracts. You therefore may receive the label you are used to or one of our new labels. If ordering more than one extract you may receive both types of labels as we make this shift.

As bitter as wormwood, goes an ancient proverb, and wormwood is indeed one of the most bitter of all plants. Named after the Greek goddess Artemis, the plant is said to have been delivered to Chiron, the father of medicine, by the goddess herself. Wormwood is often used as a companion plant, as it has strong pest repellant properties, and deters the growth of weeds. Wormwood is also used for its coloring and flavoring in liqueurs, notably vermouth and absinthe. Among its traditional uses, Pliny noted that victorious champions at the races often drank a cup of wine in which wormwood had been soaked to remind them that victory was bitter as well as sweet.
