The Green Fairy
Who is the Green Fairy...? Many myths and stories surround this famous woman. But the Green Fairy is not fictional, the "lady of Absinthe" really exists! You can buy your bottle of Absinthe easily online. And yes, Absinthe is legal. You might want to know as well something about the effect of Absinthe: What does the Green Fairy do with me..? first of all, Absinthe is not a drug. But if you drink 1-2 glasses of Absinthe you can experience what is called the "Absinthe effect". It will not cause hallucinations and you will not see the Green Fairy in person. But you will feel a mental and physical activation. Nevertheless you often read exciting stories about the Green Fairy. Famous Absinthe drinkers were Vincent van Gogh or Toulouse Lautrec. It is said that van Gogh cut off his ear after some drinks of the spirit that contains wormwood. Is it true, is it just a lie? You can read more about the Green Fairy here on this page.

The Green Fairy and Absinthe?
Will I see the Green Fairy if I drank Absinthe...? Well, that is a subjective matter, as it depends on how much you drink :-). Normally two to three glasses are sufficient to realize that things are different in comparison to the "real" world. Oscar Wilde was a famous Absintheur and he heavily relied on the "psychedelic" effects of Absinthe. Most of the stories around the Absinthe effect are exaggerated, but you can state that Absinthe causes a mental activation. It is not comparable to any drug; some people often ask if it is like THC / smoking Cannabis. It is not! Absinthe makes you active, you want to talk and dance. Therefore the symbol of the Fairy is descriptive. But it really is different to smoking cannabis. Absinthe the Green Fairy can create vivid dreams and you can feel mentally activated. You might get that special feeling poets appreciate(d). But it won´t make you freak out or cut off your ear. You might feel as well this beloved atmosphere of nostalgia, just think you would travel back in time sitting in the Moulin Rouge, next to the famous Cancan dancers. If you let inspire yourself by the Green Fairy, then you eventually will see a small Green Fairy taking a bath in your Absinthe glass...
The best way to drink the Green Fairy..?
If you want to drink Absinthe the authentic way, you have to perform the Absinthe Ritual: You need an Absinthe spoon and an Absinthe glass. If you prepare the Green Fairy the "Czech Way" you need matches as well. Because you light up the sugar after you have poured Absinthe over it. The sugar will burn, caramelize and drip into the green spirit. But the fire might destroy not only your beautiful accessories, but also the fine taste of the Green Fairy. Therefore we recommend to drink the Green Fairy the original French way, where you only add ice cold water and sugar - No Fire. (Take a look at our Absinthe Video showing the French Ritual). The Green Fairy will then eventually appear after some glasses.... It depends on your physical constitution. If you have eaten too much, a lot of fat, your stomach is kind of isolated and the thujon will not show its effect.
The wormwood plant contains thujon, the magical ingredient of the Green Fairy. It is sometimes spelled thujone
as well. Thujon is linked to Absinthe as this ingredient is responsible for the Absinthe effect. Well, let´s say partly, as the effect is of course as well caused by the high alcohol level of this very special liquor. Or have you every drank 140 proof liquor before...?
We recommend as well to prepare the Green Fairy with some authentic accessories like fountains, glasses and spoons. You can get all of these accessories at ALANDIA, the #1 Absinthe Shop in the net. There you will also find more info about the Green Fairy. Start your journey and visit ALANDIA!
