  1. sweet wormwood

    Sweet wormwood, scientifically known as Artemisia annua, is a common type of wormwood that is native to temperate Asia but naturalized in many parts of the world. It's a medicinal plant that's widely recognized for its anti-malarial properties, thanks to a compound called artemisinin. Besides malaria, it also has a range of uses in traditional Chinese medicine. The plant usually has a height of about 2 meters, with yellow or pale yellow flowers and small, olive-shaped leaves. Its common name comes from the sweet, aromatic scent that the plant gives off.
