NO!!!: Most herbal medicines are quite safe but wormwood is not one of them! there are several varieties of wormwood, but this usually refers to artemesia absinthium. It has a long history of folk use for treating worms, dyspepsia & fever but it has the potential to cause seizures, hallucinations, kidney failure & miscarriage.

Wormwood: Also called green ginger, is found in mint tea in morocco. It has been used as antiseptic, antispasmodic, & antibacterial agent. As far as capsule forms, i cannot say for sure if the content is pure or what the constituents or additives are.
