"Among the rural population
in Antique Greece,
Artemis was the favorite goddess.
Her character and actions
varied greatly from place to place.
Mainly, she is the goddess of wild nature.
usually accompanied by nymphs,
in mountains, forests and marshes."
The Artemisia, of scientific name Artemisia vulgaris, belongs to the asteraceae family. It is an aromatic plant, which was already used as a medicinal and as a condiment since ancient times. It owes its name to the Greek goddess Artemis, twin sister of Apollo and protector of female life, wild nature, pregnant and childbirth.
