Mugwort was considered the ‘universal herb for protection and prophecy’ throughout the ancient world. Native Americans burned Mugwort as a ‘smudge’ to purify the spiritual and physical environment.
Many people smudge their space with mugwort before meditations or relaxing, as it promotes a calm mind, and is believed to clear negative energies and spirits from the space. Mugwort is also known to enhance dream space and visioning.
WARNING: As mugwort relaxes the uterus it should never be drunk, smoked or even touched by expectant mothers… DO NOT USE IN PREGNANCY. Mugwort is potentially allergenic to people sensitive to plants in the Asteraceae (daisy) family.
