Mugwort

Mugwort tea is a type of herbal tea made from mugwort dried leaves. The mugwort is an herbaceous perennial plant with a woody root; it can grow up to 2 meters tall. The stem is reddish in color, with dark green, pinnate leaves that are 5-20 cm long, and radially symmetrical small flowers which have many yellow or dark red petals. It grows in Europe, Asia, northern Africa, Alaska and North America; it is often considered an invasive weed.I feel like this herb is pretty good quality. It does have a few more twigs/stems than I’d like but it’s still a pretty good deal. I made it into a tea and smoked it (along with other herbs). Both were pleasant experiences. I did have very vivid dreams the following night that I remember clearly. This is very uncommon for me and I’m sure it was the Mugwort working it’s magic. Can’t wait to continue using it.

I lived in the Grass valley and was told of a recipe known by the Indians in that area to keep poison oak away. I would pick the mugwort by the side of the road. I steeped (gentle boil) a handful of dried mugwort leaves and 20 manzanita leaves for about 10 minutes. It turned out as a fragrant tea. After cooling the tea I put it in a mason jar and kept it in the refrigerator. It keeps a long time.For millennia, mugwort has been a source for flavoring beverages and food and has also been used for its beneficial properties. There is much traditional folklore surrounding the plant and it has been reported to encourage dreaming. Artemisia vulgaris is an aromatic plant that grows along creek banks and waysides. This member of the Asteraceae family is known for the silvery shine underneath its leaves. Mugwort herb is commonly brewed into mugwort tea and can also be used as incense, incorporated into dream pillows, and infused into botanical vinegars. (Source: mountainroseherbs.com)
