What is Mugwort and should you give it a try? Mugwort is a herb that I stumbled upon while shopping in Whole Foods two years ago. While in the beauty section, I saw a basket filled with these bundles of herbs that were meant to be used like you would incense. As I looked through the basket trying to figure out the herbs I wanted to try, I saw Mugwort. It was advertised to relax and induce dreams.
After burning the Mugwort bundle for a few weeks, I noticed that I feel asleep more quickly. It also induced dreams/lucid dreaming and aided me with astral travel.
There are many different ways you can use Mugwort, whether is is for medicinal purposes or for dream work. You can use it as an essential oil, place it under your pillow, burn it, or hang it over your bed.
I tried to look on the Whole Foods website for the item I purchased, but I could not find it. If i do, I will post the link. I did find on Mountain Rose Herbs (great source for organic products) Mugwort.
Now that you know a little more about Mugwort, will you give it a try? If you have tried Mugwort before, what are your experiences and what is your method of use?
