Further Applications of Artemisia annua anamed

Veterinary medicine

To our great surprise we have received several positive reports. The most remarkable is the treatment of cancer in dogs. In general, after harvesting artemisia leaves, the remaining stems can be given to the animals so that they can nibble them according to their need. Artemisia treats their internal bacterial infections, and even the fatal coccidiosis.

Other animals may be given cut, fresh leaves, or dried leaves mixed into their feed. Suggestion for the dosage for hens, pigs, doves etc., as replacement for the harmful antibiotics: 10g dried artemisia leaves in 1 kg feed, and give for 5 to 10 days.

Researchers in Romania have given affected hens 15g of dried artemisia leaves to one kilo of dry fodder to treat eimeriosis, a disease of the intestinal lining. Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood) is also known for the treatment of worms and flukes.

Insect repellent

Farmers in Tanzania have found that, when rows of maize plants are alternated with rows of artemisia, the maize suffer from fewer insect pests and therefore require little or no insecticide.

Mosquito repellent

To repel mosquitoes, keep several artemisia plants or keep fresh artemisia branches in a vase inside the house.


Put dried Artemisia annua leaves in cloth or paper bags amongst your clothes.


To make a refreshing drink to replace commercial drinks, boil 5g of dried or 25g of fresh artemisia leaves in 1 litre of water for 10 minutes. To one cup of this tea, add 20 cups of good water and the juice of 10 lemons. Serve very cool.

FAQ on other diceases

... and some answers

Tea leaves or tea powder?

If you order A-3 tea normal at us we send you “open leaves” (“broken”) as you similar know it from peppermint tea. The advantage: you can convince yourself from the high quality: little (ineffective) stipes, no (allergenic) flowers, no discoloured leaves. You make tea of it.
Should you prefer A-3 tea powder, so you can either shred it a bit by hand (with a teaspoon in a cup) or pound it with a mortar or more pulverulent with a common electric (fly cutter) coffee grinder. It is cheaper for you if you do it yourself. If not we do it for you and charge you 1 Euro per 50 g additionally.
This A-3 powder you take directly instead of a tea (mixed with yogurt, peanut butter or banana). Please give always the order number. Prices:

What role does Moringa play?

Moringa oleifera powdered leaves are used as a tumour substance in many countries. Its main usage is as a general immune systems stimulus. We often use it in combination with Artemisia for long-term treatments (AIDS, cancer, borreliosis etc.) Aids patients in Africa have emphasised to us that Artemisia therapy must always be supplemented by Moringa. Scientific literature states that Moringa slows the enzymatic decomposition of medicines [1] This could then mean that a combination of Moringa with Artemisia leads to Artemisia compounds staying in the bloodstream for longer:
