Medicinal Minute with Ginger Webb

Medicinal Minute: Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)


A note from Ginger:

Mugwort is one of the witchy herbs, one of the herbs ruled by the Moon, the night, the waters, the dreams. Named after Artemis, the goddess of the moon, the protectress of women and babies in childbirth. I love working with mugwort as a dream enhancer, either as a tea before bed, an elixir blend, or a mugwort dream pillow stuffed with the dried plant.
