No 21 Mugwort

No 22 Mugwort - Honeyopathy

Part of the artemisia family, Mugwort's common name of wormwood, is a medicinal and culinary herb native to Eurasia and northern Africa and this perennial plant grows just about anywhere. Mugwort honors the Greek goddess, Artemis and like its namesake, the plant is associated with the moon, cycles, women’s health, and childbirth. 

In the garden, Mugwort is used in a powdered form to repel moths. Some natural gardeners also use it by laying branches between rows of onions and carrots to discourage the insect and other pests.

In Chinese medicine, mugwort is used as moxa. The aged, dried herb is lit and used above the surface of the skin to create gentle warmth that helps improve circulation and increase blood and lymph flow to areas of the body, reducing pain and inflammation.

Mugwort imparts a spicy aroma that is similar to sage and has a herbaceous grassy flavor.
  • Bodily Effect: Mugwort eases menstrual pain, improves digestion, reduces anxiety and depression, promotes dream retention, helps with weight loss, strengthens the immune system, and detoxifies the body.
  • Emotional Effect: Mugwort is a releasing plant, and in doing so allows the release of suppressed emotions in dreams (release of the psyche).
  • Spiritual Effect: Mugwort is a lunar herb, deeply connected with femininity, dreaming, and the continuous renewal that is found in the cycles of being. 
In magical traditions, mugwort is used to treat overactive dreams that are out of balance to bring out prophecy and divinatory success.

"Herbalists call Mugwort their cronewort after the wise elder archetype that provides timeless wisdom to anyone willing to listen."
