COVID and Wormwood: The Study

In the past few days at the store, we have have had multiple people come in looking for wormwood and telling us that Wormwood cures Covid and acts like Ivermectin in the body. We do have the dried herb but it seemed people wanted the tincture. We started thinking about it, and knowing the actions of wormwood, this really didn't make much sense. We found some information suggesting what everyone had told us on Dr. Google. However, we know all this information has to come from somewhere: so we went to Pub Med to find the study.

The study is named: "Arglabin could target inflammasome-induced ARDS and cytokine storm associated with Covid-19"

Let's break down the title:

 First: Arglabin is the chemical constituent in a type of wormwood that allegedly presents these effects.

Second: ARDS means Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Third: Cytokine Storm: A severe immune reaction in which the body releases too many cytokines into the blood too quickly. Cytokines play an important role in normal immune responses, but having a large amount of them released in the body all at once can be harmful. A cytokine storm can occur as a result of an infection, autoimmune condition or other disease. It may also occur after treatment with some types of immunotherapy. Signs and symptoms include high fever, inflammation (redness and swelling), and severe fatigue and nausea. Sometimes, a cytokine storm may be severe or life threatening and lead to multiple organ failure. Also called hypercytokinemia.(National Cancer Institute).

What does this mean in simple terms? It means that the main chemical constituent in wormwood may help people that are in respiratory distress. It also means that it may support people who are having a dangerous and harmful immune reactions to Covid. These states are usually when people have been hospitalized.

So this study states that they have some evidence that this can work. However, there is a bigger part of it....the constituent is isolated from the plant and then put through an IV.

There is no way that you can get that kind of potency from a tea or tincture. It's just not possible.

Also important to note: The Herbal PDR (Physician's Desk Reference) states that wormwood in the natural state as a plant as we know it's Latin names Artemisia absinthium and Artemisia glabella can have a high thujone content. In large doses this herb can cause vomiting, intestinal cramps, headaches and disturbances of the central nervous system. It also should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Those who take phenobarbital should not use this herb. 

Feel free to look at the actual study here:

This is why Faeve is here for you- to dispel alleged uses of natural plant based medicines with the scientific truth to give everyone a safer way to benefit from the use of  natural medicines. 

The Modern Apothecary Box

The Modern Apothecary Box is on its way! We advertised it a few weeks ago. We do not have many left.  However, we do want to let you know the cost is $72.00 and we have such goodies as crystals, tea products, soaps, candles plus some others which have a retail value of about $150.00. There are 11 items in the box and all of the items come from people like us, who have their version of Modern Apothecary's around the US. All items are handmade from small US based business and not available on Amazon. Just like you support us, we support them.

Some of the items are finally coming in and we couldn't be more pleased. Here is one of the items that we couldn't wait to share: sugar in the raw with organic lavender in it. Imagine a small amount of this sugar in a chocolate truffle tea? Ohhhh, did we just give something else away? Shame!

Spike Lavender vs "Regular" Lavender: What's the Difference?

We carry two different types of "Lavender" in our apothecary. Both are from the Lavandula species, but did you know that there are approximately 30 species in this genus? So all Lavender oils are not created equal and goes back to when we explain that botanical or Latin names are truly important. In the case of what many of us know as "Lavender" is actually Lavandula angustifolia. Spike Lavender is Lavandula latifolia. 

So what's the difference? 

Lavandula angustifolia or "regular" lavender has a sweet, floral refreshing aroma. Clinical uses include but are not limited to cardiovascular systems such as lowering blood pressure. It is associated with supporting the healing of burns, and healing of the skin. However, most studies have been done on the nervous system. It helps one deal with stress and works on both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. It is the first oil many go to for insomnia and to calm the mind and spirit.

Lavendula latifolia or "Spike Lavender" has more of a camphoraceous and herbaceous odor. Some spike lavender can also smell slightly woodsy as well. Clinically, this lavender is known as more as an analgesic than its cousin. It has been studied and evidenced in studies for supporting anti-inflammatory and analgesic issues. The reason we carry this oil? It's clinically studied respiratory support. This oil offers wonderful benefits and support to chest and throat infections. This oil is also safe enough to use in children as well. This oil also has more antibacterial and antifungal properties than it's commonly used cousin.

So as we go into cold and flu season remember: cough and cold, Spike Lavender. Sleep and anxiety, "Regular" Lavender. 

Coming in January!

On January 12, 2022 representatives from Ortho Molecular will be at the store for a few hours to answer all your supplement related questions about quality, what someone should be taking with different conditions, free samples of their new Detox and Functional Food line.
