Artemisia is a natural treatment for malaria. The specific species is artemisia annua, the Chinese species.
Artemisia can be grown from the seed or the stem. Seeds can be grown in a small pot with moist fertilized soil and transplanted on regular fields, after sprouting.
Artemisia annua takes 6 months to mature. The final pounded dried leaf powder last 3 to 5 months(World Health Organization, Artemisinin-based combination therapies). Artemisia tolerates dry, hot, and cold conditions. It grows well in sunlight. Soil should be loose and not too wet, with adequate drainage. Garden variety soil is fine.
Growing artemisa is as follows:
When the plant has matured, pull the leaves off. Place the leaves in the sun to dry. After drying, pound the leaves into a powder.
A tea made of the artemisia powder should be drunk . 4 teaspoons in a liter of water should be taken per day for a week. It has a very bitter taste.
