Artemisia Ointment


Artemisia ointment is an oil and wax-based topical medication of wormwood, mugwort, and balsam poplar resin for the temporary relief of joint pain and inflammation, for treating wounds, and for bacterial and fungal skin infections.

Mugwort and wormwood have been used in medicine since antiquity and were written about by ancient Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder, ancient Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides, Saint Hildegard in the High Middle Ages, Renaissance physician Paracelsus, and 17th century physician Nicholas Culpepper. Both herbs are considered nervine tonics which help nourish and sustain the central nervous system and soothe anxiety and stress. Recent scientific studies have found mugwort and wormwood can be effective for soothing rheumatism and arthritis –particularly osteoarthritis.
