Certified Organic Mugwort Summary

Mugwort is a very hardy plant that can grow to a height of six feet with stout stems, and is light purple in color. This herb has a long history of medicine use as an herbal remedy. Mugwort is a wonderful source of calcium, vitamin C, and zinc.

Traditionally mugwort has been used as a tea, however it may also be encapsulated and taken as an extract. It’s also popular to place mugwort with other botanicals (like lavender herb) in dream pillows to invoke dreams. Many claim that dreams with mugwort under the pillow are intense and vivid.

Mugwort has also been shown to be an effective digestive tonic and liver stimulant. Finally, one of our favorite ways to use mugwort is in an herbal liniment. Check out our recipe below.


Soothing Muscle Liniment Recipe

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Fill a clean glass jar half full with the herb or herbs of your choice. Click through the links above to learn more about our suggestions.
  2. Add enough witch hazel extract to completely cover the herbs.
  3. Use a clean utensil to gently stir the herbs and work out any air bubbles.
  4. Double check and make sure there is enough witch hazel to cover the herbs under one or two inches of extract.
  5. Allow your liniment to infuse for at least two weeks (4-8 is optimal) in a cool, dark place. Every day or two, check on your liniment and add more witch hazel if the herbs have absorbed it.
  6. At the end of your desired infusion time, strain the liniment and bottle in a small spray bottle for easy application.
Notes
Make sure to label your liniment clearly for external use only, and keep notes on which herbs you used and the ratios you used. That way, you can make more when you find a blend that works really well for you!
