History: Wormwood (Artemisia scoparia) is commonly confused with Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium). Wormwood is native to Asia and is considered to have toxic components. It is widely believed that it was absinthe that drove the painter Vincent van Gogh to suicide. In 1915 the French banned the production of a drink called absinthe because of its narcotic and habit-forming properties.
