What About Those Websites Promoting "Homemade Absinthe Kits?"
Absinthe kits are gaining popularity, being sold on some websites, Amazon and on eBay. Many of these revolve around the use of essential oil of wormwood or harsh solvents. These are not absinthe, these are POISON. Besides being a rather unpleasant, pale impersonation of real absinthe, drinking essential oils is not a great way to get "high" but an excellent excuse to quickly visit the emergency room. Pure essential oil of wormwood can cause renal failure and death due to the excessive amounts of thujone and neurotoxins found in it. We highly recommend that you DO NOT purchase any of these homemade absinthe kits. Buy real absinthe with wormwood instead.
Is Absinthe With Wormwood Safe to Drink?
Absinthe alcohol is as safe as any other alcoholic drink. The thujone content of all commercially produced absinthes is low enough to cause no harm to the human body. However, homemade absinthe liquor can be potentially very dangerous. Be aware of the fact that although the thujone content of absinthe liquor may not be harmful, its high alcoholic content can be. You need to know your limits and it is recommended not to mix absinthe liquor with any other strong alcohol, such as whiskey, vodka or gin. As always, practice moderation when enjoying absinthe drink and NEVER DRINK ABSINTHE and drive.
