Physical Characteristics of the Plant

The Artemisia Annua plant typically stands at a height ranging from 20-60 cm, boasting a compact, bushy demeanor characterized by numerous branching stems. Its leaves exhibit a distinctive appearance being narrow, elongated and covered in fine silver/gray hairs. This unique foliage adds to the visual allure of the plant, creating a recognizable identity.

During flowering season, Artemisia Annua unveils clusters of tiny, yellow-green blossoms, forming dense, rounded clusters at the tips of its stems, adding vibrancy to the plant's overall composition.

Cultivation & Extraction Process

Thriving in regions with a mild climate, Artemisia Annua finds its ideal home in areas bathed in full sunlight, with well-drained, rocky soils featuring the perfect mix of limestone. This specific environment contributes to the plant's resilience and influences the quality of its essential oil making Bosnia & Herzegovina the ultimate paradise for growing medicinal plants.

Artemisia Annua demands meticulous care in its cultivation and harvesting processes. The essential oil derived from this plant is revered for its medicinal compounds, making it a valuable powerhouse in the realm of natural wellness. However, the specific requirements of the environment, coupled with the intricate harvesting and distilling procedures, contribute to the exclusivity and cost of Artemisia Annua essential oil.

The extraction process involves careful steam distillation, where approximately 1.5 tons of plants are required to yield just one liter of Artemisia Annua essential oil. This labor-intensive process ensures that the oil captures the essence of the plant, containing all the medicinal compounds that contribute to its therapeutic properties.
