Description for Epazota

Dysphania ambrosioides, formerly Chenopodium ambrosioides, known as wormseed, Jesuits tea, Mexican-tea, payqu, epazote, or herba sancti Marie, is an annual or short-lived perennial herb native to Central America, South America, and southern Mexico.

Its dark green, long, slender, jagged leaves end in a point. The flowers are green and very small; they produce thousands of tiny seeds Native to Central America, where it has been grown for culinary and medicinal purposes for countless generations, epazote has spread as a weed (growing in empty lots and by roadsides) throughout a large part of North and South America and even into Europe and Asia, where practically no one is aware of its uses.

Special features: The use of epazote can be traced back to the Aztecs. Epazote contains an essential oil which is up to 70% ascaridole, which gives it a similar character to boldo, another leafy, pungent herb consumed in South Amercian folk medicine as a digestive tea.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: The common name, wormseed, indicates one of epazote s common medicinal uses, to kill intestinal worms.In the Kitchen: Epazote is a herb used in traditional Mexican cooking for its pungent flavor, and is often used to flavor beans.
