Wormwood Analgesic + Antiseptic Balm


Wormwood Balm is a reformulation of our Artemisia Ointment now with only two main ingredients: wormwood (artemisia absinthium) and poplar bud (populus balsamifera). Wormwood is a potent topical anesthetic that helps relieve the pain, inflammation, soreness, and stiffness of muscles and joints, as well as speeds up the healing of bruises. This balm is effective at relieving sore muscles, bone and joint pain, arthritis, rheumatism and especially at relieving osteoarthritis and knee pain. Wormwood is more than a pain reliever, like Poplar Bud, it is also antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, and antimicrobial making it useful for wound care, fungal skin infections, and severe acne.

Wormwood has been used in medicine since antiquity and was 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. Wormwood is considered a nervine tonic which helps nourish and sustain the central nervous system and soothe anxiety and stress. Recent scientific studies have found wormwood can be effective for soothing rheumatism and arthritis –particularly osteoarthritis.

Wormwood Balm is a non-drowsy alternative for managing pain and stress during the day when you need an alternative to our sedative pain-relieving balms. Wormwood Balm can be used to relieve the pain and inflammation of arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, sprains, and other joint and tendon issues.

Wormwood Balm relieves sore muscles providing relief for overtired and overworked hands, wrists, feet, and legs.

Wormwood Balm can soothe minor wounds to the skin and prevent infection. Apply directly to scratches, abrasions, splinters, and minor cuts. Only apply to more serious wounds after a scab has started to form.

Wormwood Balm is antibacterial and antifungal and can be applied twice per day to bacterial and fungal skin infections, nail fungus, ingrown toenails, ingrown hairs, common warts, and severe acne.
