Mugwort - The Dreammaker
Mystical, magic, heartening.... mugwort is a brave sorceress of a plant, bathed in moon energy.
Mugwort is known as a dreamtime plant. Her nervine properties aid sleep as well as depression and ease tension or nervousness. She also supports the regulation of menstrual flow and is useful for menstrual pain and cramps.
Mugwort aids digestion through bitter stimulation and supports gastric disorders, stomach pain, indigestion, travel sickness, stomach acidity, constipation and bowel issues. She can increase appetite. She has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties as well, which can help against internal and external parasite infections such as tapeworm or warts.
But she doesn't just stop there. Mugwort has been used as a remedy for colds, epilepsy, fevers, asthma, high blood sugar and more.
I often take mugwort glycerite on my moon for support. We also use mugwort as a protective smudge and to keep in dreamtime pillows. It is said that these same pillows can also protect you while traveling. I have also made a dreamy mugwort salve with lavender.
Thank you, sacred Mugwort, for opening the doors to moontime in a safe and protective way.
