Mugwort Herb or Artemisia vulgaris, has a long and rich history of use in medicine as an herbal remedy. Mugwort Herb is a great source of vitamin C, calcium and zinc.

The Artemisia vulgaris is found in North America, Asia and Europe, including Great Britain. This hardy plant can grow to a height of six feet with stout stems, a light purple in color. In North America the Mugwort Herb plant is mistaken to be a weed, since it is very hard to get rid of. However, in Europe and Asia, the reputation of the Artemisia vulgaris is much better because of its long history of medicinal use.

Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) is a perennial herb native to Europe, Asia, and North America. It has long been used in spiritual, ritual, and medicinal practices due to its various properties and energetic qualities.

In spiritual and ritual practices, mugwort is often used as a smudging herb to purify and cleanse energy. It is also used in dream pillows to enhance vivid dreaming and to induce lucid dreaming. Mugwort has a strong connection to the moon and is often associated with the goddess Artemis, hence its Latin name. It is also believed to have protective qualities and is sometimes worn or carried for this purpose.

Historically, mugwort has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. It has been used to treat a wide range of ailments, including digestive issues, insomnia, and pain. It has also been used to stimulate menstruation and to ease childbirth.

Mugwort is energetically warming and drying, making it useful for balancing excess moisture in the body. It is also said to be helpful for balancing the Pitta dosha in Ayurvedic medicine.

In astrological terms, mugwort is associated with the planet Mercury and the sign of Virgo. It is believed to enhance communication, intelligence, and mental clarity.

Mugwort contains various constituents, including flavonoids, essential oils, and tannins. It also contains the chemical compound thujone, which can be toxic in high doses.

Mugwort is typically harvested in the summer or fall, when the plant is in full bloom. To harvest mugwort, cut the stems just above the base of the plant. The leaves and stems can then be dried and stored for later use.

When using mugwort medicinally, it is important to follow proper dosage guidelines. As a general rule, 2-3 grams of dried mugwort can be taken as a tea or infusion up to three times daily. Mugwort should be avoided during pregnancy and by individuals with liver or kidney issues.

To store mugwort, keep it in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
