Description (What is Mugwort):

Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort or common wormwood) is one of several species in the genus Artemisia which have common names that include the word mugwort. This species is also occasionally known as Felon Herb, Chrysanthemum Weed, Wild Wormwood, Old uncle Henry, Sailor's Tobacco, Naughty Man, Old Man or St. John's Plant.

Mugwort has a pleasantly stimulating effect which, depending upon the dosage and sensitivity, might develop into a mildly euphoric state. The effects can be somewhat similar to cannabis. Mugwort is said to induce lucid dreaming and astral travel. Consuming the plant prior to sleeping is said to increase the intensity of dreams, the level of control, and to aid in the recall of dreams upon waking. Many people all over the world use this herb in different manners to relieve several complaints: from cold and bronchitis to stomach disorders. Many women use it to relieve menstrual pain.

A common way to use mugwort is to make tea with it. Soak 1 teaspoon in a cup of hot (non-boiling) water. You can sweeten it with a small amount of honey or sugar. 
You can also make a tincture of mugwort. Soak 40 grams (1½ oz.) of mugwort for a couple of weeks in ½ liter of alcohol (wodka, for example). After sifting it, the drink is ready for use. At first try only a little glass to determine your dosage. You can also use mugwort as incense.

Mugwort is slightly toxic, therefore it should never be used by pregnant women, especially in their first trimester, since it could cause a miscarriage. Large, prolonged usage can damage the nervous system.

Mugwort pollen is one of the main sources of hay fever and allergic asthma, in North Europe, North America and in parts of Asia. Mugwort pollen generally travels less than 2,000 meters. The highest concentration of mugwort pollen is generally found between 9 and 11 am. The Finnish allergy association recommends tearing as method of eradicating mugwort. Tearing mugwort is known to lessen the effect of the allergy, since the pollen flies only short distance. Cooking is known to decrease the allergenicity of mugwort.
