Recipe for liqueur, wine and wormwood tea – improves appetite and mood

Wormwood, like all other bitter herbs, should be taken only before meals. Then they have a beneficial effect on the stomach, improve appetite and mood. From wormwood we can make medicinal liqueur, wine and tea ourselves.

If you buy ingredients for the preparation you will not be able to buy fresh leaves, but you will therefore find dried wormwood leaves in specialized health food stores that can also be used in the preparation.

Medicinal wormwood wine

Half a handful of wormwood is poured into a liter of white wine or beer and left to stand for two weeks. Then strain and take a small glass for three to four days in a row. This stimulates appetite, improves digestion.

  • Stir and allow to cool.
  • Then pour the brandy, stir and pour into a larger glass jar in which it all stands together for 5 days.
