We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

Artemisia abrotanum



Southernwood is an antiseptic herb, most useful in herbal preparations for problem skin and hair care. It can also be used an insect repellent.


To use Southernwood in skin care remedies for problem skin, use 500ml Southernwood leaves, 125ml barley and 1l spring water. Boil all ingredients together then simmer gently for thirty minutes. Strain the liquid off, pour into a clean bottle and refrigerate. The liquid can be used as a wash. Use within one week.


Make a Southernwood infusion to stimulate hair growth – infuse 250ml fresh herb to 250ml boiling spring water. Strain and bottle. To use, massage regularly into the scalp. Keep refrigerated and use within one week.
