Why Feed your horse Wormwood?
As the name suggests, Wormwood has been used over the years as an effective wormer for both Animals & Humans, and is most commonly used in Horses as a powerful expellant of worms and unwanted parasites. Its actions are Bitter tonic (Helps with digestion), Carminative (Reduce Flatulence), Anthelmintic (Worming) and Anti-Inflammatory. All of these make this herb a great supplement to use when with a horse that is suffering with digestive issues. It can also be used externally as a wash for fungal or bacterial infections of the skin.
Please note - Wormwood should not be used long term (internally or externally) or fed to pregnant mares.

Feeding as an Infusion
Many herbs, including Wormwood, can be fed as an Infusion, this helps the active ingredients become more readily available and more easily absorbed by your horse.
- Put the daily required amount of herbs in a bucket (quantities stated above)
- Add 1/2 pint (300ml) of boiling water to the herbs, mix and then allow to cool
- When cooled, the whole infusion (including the herbs) can be used to dampen down your horses feed.
If you don't have access to a kettle you can just soak your herbs overnight and this will also help your horse absorb the natural vitamins, minerals & active ingredients.
Wormwood can also be made into a solution for treating problem areas. To do this, place around 10-15g into a bowl, pour 250ml of boiling water and steep for 5-10 minutes, then thoroughly cool the mixture. The liquid can then be used to wash & clean skin conditions & infestations.
