Uses

Toxic parts

The following notes are from a report on the closely related A. absinthum, they quite possibly also apply to this species. The plant is poisonous if used in large quantities[4][8]. Even small quantities have been known to cause nervous disorders, convulsions, insomnia etc[9]. Just the scent of the plant has been known to cause headaches and nervousness in some people[10].

Edible uses

Notes

The leaves are occasionally used as a flavouring[1]. Some caution is advised, see the notes above on toxicity.

Leaves

Material uses

The growing shoots are said to repel insects and mice[2][3][4], they have also been used as a strewing herb[6][5]. An infusion is said to discourage slugs and insects[5][3].

Medicinal uses(Warning!)

Sea wormwood is not much used in herbal medicine, though it is often used domestically. Its medicinal virtues are similar to wormwood, A. absinthum, though milder in their action. It is used mainly as a tonic to the digestive system, in treating intermittent fevers and as a vermifuge[6]. The leaves and flowering shoots are anthelmintic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, cholagogue, emmenagogue, febrifuge, stimulant, stomachic, tonic and vermifuge[6][7]. The plant is harvested as it comes into flower and is dried for later use[6]. The unexpanded floral heads contain the vermicide 'santonin'[11].

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame. Division in spring or autumn[12].

Cultivation

Succeeds in any soil but prefers a poor dry soil with a warm aspect[13]. Easily grown in a well-drained circumneutral or slightly alkaline loamy soil, preferring a sunny position[14][12]. Plants are longer lived, more hardy and more aromatic when they are grown in a poor dry soil[15]. Tolerates a pH in the range 6.0 to 7.6. Dislikes shade. Established plants are very drought tolerant[16][12]. Tolerates maritime exposure[16]. The whole plant has a sweet aromatic smell[15]. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus[12]. Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer[17].
