Absinthe Extract - “referred in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy), this anise-flavoured botanical spirit is derived from the flowers and leaves of wormwood, anise and fennel. It rose to popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th and early 20th century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers. Absinthe has often been portrayed as a psychoactive hallucinogen, but the truth of this remains a mystery. Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is highly antibacterial and anti-fungal and shows antioxidant properties too.”
