The amount of thujone in absinthe is so minimal as so be virtually non-existent. The effect in absinthe is from all of the herbs combined. The early belief in the effects of thujone were due to shoddy science and nothing more.
Ans here is the Absinthe Heritage louche video:

In France it is now legal to print “Absinthe” on the label of the Absinthe bottle . In the last years it was only allowed to label Absinthe as “Spiritueux aux plantes d´Absinthe”: A spirit made with the herb absinthe, as the spirit “Absinthe” itself was still prohibited in France. This new law, in fact the last step [...]
This is awesome, I really love these absinthe corpus delicti from the past!
I’ve been collecting antique absinthe memorabilia for a while now and have some glasses, spoons and other stuff, but have never seen one of these before. It’s an antique lighter that has an engraved advertisement for Premier Fils absinthe on one side. When I got it, it needed a thorough cleaning and was missing a few [...]

TO All MEMBERS OF ”THE ALANDIA ABSINTE COMMUNITY”
This is my referring to the Absinthe community. We do and suppose to represent actually a high class culture, since I am in the community I have only read things there, like: how do I color ice cube; how stoned I was or some mystery nonsense about tujone. I would like to say that is not the way to represent the high Absinthe culture, because there is much more behind. Think about what other people who visit the page,will think and be impressed from it. Absinthe has still his mythological bad reputation, and some of them get fascinated because has the illegal background from the past,but that is all over, now a new era has started. All the Absinthers have to follow a proper cultural way, the point of it is to lift up the Absinthe culture in the proper way, and not with nonsense. Think, it is also our responsibility, to give to the Absinthe the high class quality back into the society. I have bomb you with a lot of proper knowledge about the Absinthe Culture, because I feel really responsible, to lift it up again and not to continue the same old story. All of you have a chance to do the right representation, to uncover the beauty of the Absinthe culture. Please sit seriously and try to discover real and deep,with scientific and intellectual values. For the Absinthe culture it is very important and those values are worth to be share with people. Please be serious and try to give nice intellectual contribution to the Absinthe culture, and not some nonsense stories around the Absinthe, because for people with knowledge all that look very childish, and also give a bad reputation to the Absinthe community, to the Alandia page and to all Absinthe producers and web sites. The factor fun, should for sure not be lost, but most important is that for people who have no idea about Absinthe, it needs to be given proper knowledge to them and right introduction to the Absinthe Culture.
I hope I will not be misunderstood, because for me this Absinthe Culture has a big value. In Swiss, Germany and all over EU community it start already some strict control movement against alcohol, especially for high volumes alcohol, where Absinthe belong. They want to ban alcohol all over like they have done for tobacco already ! because it is not right represented and consumed with out some individual control.Those are the arguments of the governments. I believe Absinthe is to alter you self in to an higher staid of mind.I believe Absinthe or other substances, have a medical and therapeutic purpose and they can also alter yourself into a higher state of mind. This makes them very precious.

Krishan, this is very good advice and I agree with you 100%. Keep up the good work!
You do raise some very valid points, Krishan. However, even though I definitely feel that the traditional method is, by far, the best, & seldom try the other ways, I do feel that absinthe is a very versatile drink. So, while it may not be favoured by us, coloured ice cubes, the bohemian method, huffing, flaming shots, etc. all add to the versatility. It is, ideed, as much of a party drink as any other alcohol. But also a relaxation drink, a sophisticated drink, a medicinal drink, a spiritual drink & more.
The non-traditional methods can be viewed as:
1: Ways to introduce the un-initiated to the Green Fairy, and those among them who take interest in it will be later rewarded with knowledge of the other methods, especially the tradtional.
2: Ways for the traditionalists’ to break from the norm from time to time.
The main thing we should be concerned with is spreading the word to popularise it again, the rest will follow in turn & everyone will be able partake of it in their own perferred fashion.
