Sweet Annie Essential Oil


Sweet annie is native to northern Eurasia and is related to the famous absinthe wormwood. Traditional herbalists used sweet annie as a women’s medicine to treat painful menstruation and ease childbirth. It was also employed in Chinese medicine to treat skin conditions, jaundice, and dysentery. Sweet annie stems and leaves are still used in China to make a spicy, slightly bitter salad that is considered a delicacy.
