I've lumped on this page the information on page Wormwood (I think that makes sense). Which species give absinthe its flavour and which bring thujone needs to be straightened; it should at least be consistent with the absinthe page... Azhyd 22:26, Aug 18, 2004 (UTC)

Added a warning that thujone is a neurotoxin. It really is, folks.

So, don't drink wormwood oil. --Elix 05:58, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Taiwan's "aicao"[edit]

Plenty of "Artemisia princeps Pamp. var. orientalis (Pamp.) Hara" here in Taiwan, but no mention in the article. --User:Jidanni 2006-04-19

The dusty miller reference...[edit]

The name "Dusty Miller" is occasionaly used for several small shrub-like plants with distinct silver foliage. None of the members of Artemesia are generally refered to as this. Typically, "Dusty Miller" refers to the plant Senecio cineraria

Just added some stuff about witchcraft practices and Artemisia that I found by accident and thought interesting. Phillippos 21:12, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Trivia section[edit]

I renamed "Associations in human culture" to "Trivia." The information in this section should be integrated into the body of the article or removed. Helikophis 17:32, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

I cannot find a reference to Artemisia 'Powis Castle'. I have this growing in my garden in southern California. It is supposedly a hybrid between A. arborescens and A. absinthium. DERoss (talk) 00:25, 28 July 2017 (UTC)D.E.Ross
