i got this from my dad today. he's my poppa greenthumb. absolutely beautiful plant and highly medicinal. i think everyone should have one. its that good. its on a windowsill right now recovering from the transplant.

uses
Quote:

Botanical characteristics and habitat: It grows in the wild in almost all the states of Mexico's high central plateau, as well as in San Luís Potosí, Veracruz, Guerrero, Michoacán, Oaxaca, etc., Mexico. Herbaceous plants are 20 to 47 inches high (50 to 120cm). Leaves are ash green, aromatic, alternate, sessile, and tomentose. Flowers are disposed in panicles.

Properties: Anthelmintic, aperitive, stomachic, emmenagogue, cholagogue, antispasmodic, and antirheumatic.

Uses in traditional medicine: Artemisia ludoviciana ssp mexicana, Artemisia mexicana Willd., Artemisia mexicana var., angustifolia. Artemisia vulgaris L. is anthelmintic, aperitive, stomachic and regulates menstruation. It excites gastric juices and bile secretion. Therefore, it is useful in dyspeptic ailments accompanied by a lack of appetite, and in gastric atony. Its antispasmodic action helps alleviate pain caused by hepatic colic in gallstone cases.

In Mexico, the Huicholes drink juice made from the leaves to treat "yuriepa-cucuiniya" (abdominal pain.) The indigenous people of Quebec used the plants native to the area, Artemisia canadensis and A. ludoviciana, to prepare a stomachic and vermifuge infusion, as well as poultices used for treating burns. In Peru and Bolivia, the Aymara used to crown their heads and wrap their waists with Artemisia on "St. John's eve." That is, the Aymara's New Year, in order to guard themselves against evil spells, sickness, accidents, and, above all, bad luck.

In Europe Artemisia was used as a powerful amulet against evil spells. The flowers and the leaves were also used to make perfume against demons. In Germany it was cut on the morning of "St. John's Day" to make crowns to wear as a form of protection against evil spells. It was also harvested in Normandy on St. John's fair to destroy evil spells that prevented cows from producing milk. In France, it was harvested before St. John's holiday and used to treat epilepsy and as a form of protection against lightning and hail. It seems that the Latin name Artemisia was taken from the Moon Goddess. That's why it was probably associated with menstruation. Hence, it has been used since ancient times to regulate menstruation in women who experience a difficult and painful period. In Austria, neither the devil, nor evil spells have any effect on those who carry Artemisia. By the same token, a branch placed on house doors protects the house against evil spells. Artemisia was one of the nine plants used in the Middle Ages to repel demons and vampires.

Remedies:

Make an infusion or decoction with 100 grams of stems, flowers and leaves and drink half a cup two times before meals to stimulate the appetite.
Put 10 grams in a cup of boiled water. Drink three times a day to expel intestinal worms and to regulate menstruation.
Put 3 or 4 dry leaves in a glass of hot white wine, or use powdered leaves mixed with honey two to three times a day as an antispasmodic.
Constituents: From the phytochemical perspective, Mexican white sagebrush is one of the most studied plants and the following constituents have been identified: Guaianolide chrysartemine A; eudesmanolides, ludalbin, santamarin, alpha-epoxyludalbin, arglanin, douglanin, armexin; terpenes borneol, camphor, limonene, alpha and beta-phellandrene, and sesquiterpenes armefolin, 8-alpha-acetoxyarmexifolin and armexifolin; sesquiterpene lactones estafiatin, friedoolean-3-one, artemisia-ketone, tulipinolide, and the germacranolide artemorin. In general, Mexican white sagebrush contains an essential oil rich in cineole and bitter components. Leaves, roots, and seeds contain oil and santonin, nitrogenous matter, resinous substances (both are very bitter), chlorophyll, albumen, starch, cellulose, wax, tannin and salts, and a special alkaloid. Artemisia vulgaris contains essential oils, resin, tannin, mucilage, inulin. Leaves contain vitamins A1, B1, B2 and C.

There are about 350 Artemisa species in the world known by the common name "estafiate" (Mexican white sagebrush), some of which are found in Mexico. The plants are very aromatic and have a bitter taste. Artemisia klotzchiana grows in the arid region of the state of Hidalgo, Mexico, better known as the Valle del Mezquital. Artemisia klotzchiana produces strong substances that inhibit the germination of other species. These substances, also produced by Artemisia californica, are as follows: camphor, cineole, alpha-thujone. Artemisia klotzchiana's acid fraction contains carvacrol, and eugenol. Artemisia klotzchiana's neutral fraction contains: camphor, alpha-thujone, limonene, 1,8-cineole, phellandrene, and borneol. Artemisia mexicana contains camphor, beta-phellandrene, limonene, and borneol. Artemisia mexicana var., angustifolia contains eudesmanolide 165, which has been callec artimexifolin, and tulipinolide and arglanin.

Precautions and contraindications: Alleviates the pain of menstrual cramps by enhancing uterine hemorrhage. Therefore, pregnant women should not use it without medical guidance because it is a potential aborticide. Likewise, it is not recommended for newborns. A high dose may cause metabolic disorders and neurotoxicity. Consult your doctor.







real bushy now. :super:

Alot of Mexicans in my town are into white magic and plant Artemisia (especially white colored ones) with European rue and oregano. Many of the local practices are nearly indistinguishible from European concepts, using the same herbs.

As a smudge, it was believed to dispel the "sick air," which accompanied the Black Death. Modern pandemics were also preceded by a stench.

I believe that a loosening action is implied - miasmas, parasites, demons, witchshot, fetuses, choleric/bilious humors...

In my experience, vapors from the crushed leaves can be more penetrating than Mentholyptus, but the juice can be overly drying when applied directly to mucous membranes. The quid is effective on infected sores and as an antiviral in sore throats, espcecially scummy ones.

Herbal Medicine of the American Southwest says that it improves immunity.

It's put in sleep pillows, because the smell is supposed to induce dreams. This may be due to the fact that thujone is a nervous system stimulant.

It was rumored to cause epilepsy in people who drank excesses of Absinthe.

(I'm going Off-Topic, here, but the holy angels and Lamb are present in the Christian Hell of Revelation 14:10, ferrel_human.)

good info durian. its good to know this. i, as well as my father, use it as a tea. it, mixed with chamomile or sleep time extra tea bags, has a very relaxing mood.

it stops stomach aches almost instantly. i absolutely love this plant. and someone on here told me you can smoke it to, to create a relaxing smoke.

once my plant gets bigger, i will definitly try it with my other medicine :happyweed:

A trace of Artemisia, mixed in with tobacco, adds a nice menthol-like effect. Also good with lavender.

I've read that Artemisia was associated with Tagetes lucida, a marigold, which is added to tobacco. (This marigold is associated with clouds.)

Even though Artemesia is associated with the moon and dreaming, a thick cloud of the stimulant oils has a harsh, minty bite.

I believe that Artemisia has different effects, depending on dosage.

I've also noticed that Artmesias vary from ligther colored to darker, and, speaking informally, the darker ones tend to be more mild and calming, while the lighter ones seem to be more active and energetic.

I have trashbags full of ludoviciana I collected from areas of Idaho intended for making into smudge sticks.

Does normal Ludoviciana have similar medicinal properties as ssp. mexicana?
