Mugwort is an herbaceous perennial plant commonly found in North America, Europe, Asia and Northern Africa. Historically, it was a popular medicinal herb in ancient Greece, Rome, and China. Once referred to as the "mother of herbs", it was commonly used to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, expel parasites, and promote restful sleep.
Today, mugwort is an ancient herb with a wide array of holistic wellness uses, including easing digestive issues, promoting relaxation, and supporting women's health.
Classified as an herbal oneirogen, mugwort has also become increasingly popular for its ability to support lucid dreaming and dream exploration, promoting increased awareness, heightened senses, and vivid dream recall when combined with common lucid dreaming practices. While this may seem like a new trend, Native Americans have, in fact, used mugwort for thousands of years to ward off ghosts and to support a stronger connection spiritually with their dreams. Traditional applications have included herb sachets, teas, and smoking.
With its earthy, herbaceous aroma and hint of bitterness, this herb remains a popular choice for tea and other preparations.
