 Absinthe is wormwood.  Absinthe is available as an essential oil.  Although
I don't have a source.  Sweet smelling.  Absinthe was an emerald green
liqueur that was popular until it was band in the early 1920's due to it's
toxicity.  people used to get pretty zonked on it and all my readings
suggest it was very addictive.   The terpins in the plant seem to be
responsible for the effects.

I have seen worm wood listed as an ingredient in some German wines.  However
the nasty ingredient thujone that  causes the toxic effects has been
removed.  I've drank it but can't remember what it tasted like.
