I thought this was interesting (from paganwiccan.about.com):
Wormwood is used to enhance psychic abilities, divination, astral work and any rituals involving the spirit world. If you burn wormwood as an incense, make sure the room is well ventilated. Dried wormwood can protect your home as well.
According to old folk tales, burning wormwood and sandalwood in a cemetary would enable you to speak to the dead. Also, a charm of dried wormwood will protect you from sea serpents (in case that's a problem in your life)
