Mirabel, I see that you quote Proverbs. I have a question about wormwood in the Bible "...he hast made me drunken with wormwood."(Lamentations 3:15) Would this have been wormwood liquor like absinthe or does chewing wormwood cause intoxication?
"Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall..."(Jeremiah 23:15)"
