a few drops of wormwood and about 8 ounces of hydrosol!
How interesting!

I will buy some very nice bottle of absinthe like booze at the liquor store and then I will add this and serve it in a 2 ounce bottle to my lovely friends...
so what like 4 drops in 16 ounces of liquor?

chemical composition of wormwood

A. absinthium extracts and essential oils are used for healing various diseases (Lawless, 1999; Balz, 1996; Wright, 2002). Oil of A. absinthium has been found to repel fleas and flies (Duke, 1995) and mosquitoes (Morton, 1981) and to kill houseflies (Kaul et al., 1978). Anthelmintic, antibacterial, antifungal, insect repellent, narcotic, digestive, tonic and other bioactivities are characteristic of preparations from wormwood plants. Their stimulant property is dependent on bitter substances as artabsin (sesquiterpene lactone) and absinthin (dimmer of sesquiterpene lactronic users. In addition, thujones may evoke dementia (Wright, 2002).
