Out of stock



Mugwort is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has become an
invasive weed in North America. Its leaves have have long been used as a
flavoring agent to season fat, meat, or fish, and is perhaps most famously
known for seasoning Goose in Germanic traditions. In Japan and Korea it is
also known for being used to color festive rice cakes, and is a common
seasoning within Korean soups and pancakes. It should be noted that Mugwort
can be a hallucinogenic, but when cooked those properties are neutralized. In
the mid-ages Mugwort was part of a herbal mix called Gruit, which was used to
flavor beer before the widespread use of hops, likely resulting in
hallucination as well as inebriation! In ancient and medieval times Mugwort
was also used for its magical properties, where it was seen as a protective
herb that could dispel fatigue and protect a traveler from evil spirits and
wild animals. Indeed, it was included in the 10th century “Nine Herb Charm”
that is said to ward off poison and illness. It is also supiced to be a potent
aid in lucid dreaming, astral travel, and otherwise increasing the intensity
of dreams, as well as the ability to control and remember them. In Ayurveda
medicine in India, Mugwort is also used for cardiac complaints, feelings of
unease, and general malaise. Within Chinese medicine, it is pulverized and
aged into a form called Moxa. In this form it has shown a great deal of aid in
positioning fetuses that are in breech positioning. Moxa and acupuncture has
also been shown to slow fetal heart rates while increasing fetal movement.
Moxa has also been shown however to possibly cause uterine contractions.
