Self care tip/smudge mugwort


For accessibility:

Self care tip- Smudging with mugwort tends to calm people & spaces. Don’t forget to open windows as you cleanse with it.

Mugwort is an aromatic flowering plant in the genus Artemisia. It goes by other common names such as Saint John’s herb & Chrysanthemum weed, among other things. Some of its properties are antibacterial, antifungal, nervine: nerve calming, emmenogogue: promotion of healthy and regular menstrual cycle, and more. Some folks have used mugwort boost their energy & promote circulation.

Mugwort is closely associated with dreams & divination. People put in under their pillow, make it into a tea to relax before bed and/or smudge it to cleanse a space.


*

Pregnant people or folx who breast/chest feeding shouldn’t use it. Also people who have moderate to severe allergies, especially to ragweed, shouldn’t use it, as well. Side effects tend to be mild, tho.
