Artemisia/Wormwood Essential Oil
Also known as Wormwood, is a powerful oil associated with the Wiccan culture. It has a pungent herbal odour that is sharp yet warm. Take care to protect yourself when using this oil, it has very strong abortifacient properties and should NEVER be used topically. It is however, great for candle making and burning for spells and rituals. Often associated with the herbal drink that induces hallucinations, this is highly concentrated and should NEVER be consumed. Seek immediate medical attention should this occur.
