Mugwort is amazingly brilliant. I know i say that about every herb i am in the mood to enthuse about but really…It is magic & protective to the nth degree. The Latin name for this herb is Artemisia Vulgaris – herb of Artemis, the Moon Goddess. Even a teensy bit of the fresh or dried mugwort in between the pillow case & the pillow will induce the most intense dreams – I try it occasionally, when I am feeling daring enough. AND i am trying to grow it.
Some say it was the herb used in flying ointment, to make the brooms witches flew on. It’s sooo powerful that you’d only want to touch it in a blend made by a qualified herbalist.
Mugwort is revered in Chinese Medicine, where they all it Ai-Ye & it’s used in moxibustion, done by acupuncturists for all sort of things but most commonly to move breech babies though i had it this morning to raise Qi. The word “moxy” comes from “moxa” which is the medicinal application of Mugwort to the Chinese meridians et al.
Mostly what i use it for is as a smudge stick – most smudge sticks are sage & mugwort IS actually a variety of sage. So when you want to cleanse the atmosphere of your space & it need something super-heavy-duty, beyond normal white sage smudging, you reach for the Mugwort. I haven’t done a posting on smudging yet; short version – clean your house, throw shit out & then light the smudge stick & waft it about, as if cleansing the air. It is instantly effective.
You can get smudge sticks from any good new agie shops, the peeps i linked to above or google them…
