This herb has a long history and has been used by humans for thousands of years. For example, certain Chinese poems and songs mention it as far back as 3 B.C. Mugwort was also revered by Roman soldiers, who placed this herb in their sandals before marching to battle, to ward off fatigue and remain protected from wild animals and evil spirits. Mugwort is thought to be native to Europe, Northern Africa, but it now grows in much of the lower United States area. Furthermore, this herb has been used as a spice, food, incense, medicine, spiritual aid, acupuncture and Chinese medicine (Moxibustion). Moxibustion is a practice that has been used for more than 3,000 years in China, which focuses on strengthening the life energy in the body (Chi force), improving the circulation of the blood and treating inflammations. This herb was also used for flavouring beer along with other beverages and as a moth and insect repellent in gardens. People even placed it under their pillows as they claimed it could help induce vivid dreams and open the third eye. Moreover, it contains volatile oils, giving it a strong bitter aroma with mint undertones. The fact that this plant is considered an invasive weed and is found growing in waste places provides evidence that it is a survivor which has something to offer! Today, it is well known that Mugwort tea can help with gas, flatulence, stomach acid, bile production, and overall digestion (The root is considered to be quite helpful against stomach pains). Mugwort tea can be enjoyed before bedtime, as this herb also has nerve-soothing properties. Mugwort is also considered an emmenagogue, antispasmodic, and hemostatic, which means 1-3 cups of tea a day will help women with menstrual cramps or those who have heavy, prolonged bleeding. In European and American herbal practices, Mugwort is often used to treat stomach and intestinal problems such as: colic, gas, diarrhea and constipation. In addition, it is also used to ease: headaches, nosebleeds, chills, fever, nerve problems and insomnia. Last but not least, it clears the bad air! Science has officially recognized what folk medicine has known for centuries—that burning herbs to “clear the energy” does just that: It kills bad bacteria lingering around! Indeed, Mugwort is antimicrobial and can help to get your house purged of nasty bacteria! Therefore, consider using a mugwort smudge or incense.
