This Sweet Annie was grown in my garden.


I got to know this heavenly-smelling herb long ago in a herbal wreath-making class.  I discover recently its medicinal properties.  I wasn't so interested in knowing its malaria assisting properties but now I'm reading research about its aid in Covid. 


“Artemisia annua  is best known for its use in treatment of malaria. However, recent studies also indicate the potential for artemisinin and related compounds, commonly referred to as artemisinins, in combating viral infections, inflammation and certain cancers. Moreover, the different potential modes of action of artemisinins make these compounds also potentially relevant to the challenges the world faces in the COVID-19 pandemic.”


Sweet Wormwood (Sweet Annie, Artemisia annuae, or qing hao in Chinese medicine) is a premier antimicrobial herb.  Its application in herbal medicine traditions spans the globe and a wide array of pathogens, from parasites to babesia, to Lyme-Borreliosis, and viruses.  For example, it was demonstrated to inhibit replication of SARS CoV-2.


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, sweet wormwood (Sweet Annie) is ideal for clearing fevers due to epidemic and pestilential qi, such as occurs when we catch an infection from a bug bite or a flu-like illness that causes fever, sweating, chills, body aches and is difficult to clear fully from the body.


It is also an anti-toxin herb and an immune system mediator, which also makes it a top choice for auto-immune presentations such a Lupus, Sjogren’s, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
