You’re looking at the Common Wormwood (Absinthe) Seeds from Piccolo Seeds. Artemisia, named after the ancient Greek goddess Artemis, is a herbaceous perennial plant with silvery-green leaves, famously known as the main ingredient of absinthe. This legendary liqueur was first created in 1792 by French doctor Pierre Ordinaire as a handy remedy form of the plant, which long had been known to have powerful healing properties. Commercial absinthe production began thanks to his son-in-law, Henry-Louis Pernod. The rest is history, and by the end of the 19th century, the bohemian literary crowd, who gathered in European cafes and claimed liqueurs as their muse and inspiration, embraced absinthe.
