The Greek physicians more than 2,500 years ago noted their useful bitter qualities and how the artemisias can be important for good health. Bitter herbs like artemisia kick-start the digestive system, stimulate the liver, and boost the immune system.

Besides running a busy practice, Carmen is creator of, an organic plant-based skincare line made by hand in small batches. She also serves as Richters online medical herbs expert.

The video tells the short story of Artemisia annua (Sweet wormwood) which came to the lime light of modern Phytotherapy when in 2015 Madam Youyou Tu, a Chinese Professor for traditional medicine received the Nobel Prize of the year 2015 for her discovery in 1970 of the chemical compound extracted from the leaves that cures malaria. Till today Artemisinin is the main weapon to fight malaria parasites which had become resistant to nearly all other chemical drugs. More than 30 patents are registered for the use of Artemisinin and its derivates in treatment of malaria and several other diseases including breast-, prostate and other carcinoma.
A tea made from the leaves, containing, apart from Artemisinin nine other anti-malarial substances can help to fight malaria in regions where people have no access to medical care or are too poor to buy the expensive pharmaceutical products – which particularly in Africa are often either fake or of substandard quality.
The plant grows very well in tropical Africa.
