History of Mugwort:
Mugwort was considered the 'universal herb for protection and prophecy' throughout the ancient world. Dedicated to the goddesses Artemis and Diana, Mugwort was used for pain and healing, psychic powers and lucid dreaming. In ancient China and Japan, Mugwort was hung in open doorways to exorcise the spirits of disease. The ancient Europeans did the same to ward off evil spirits. In modern herbalism, Mugwort is used to stimulate and ease menstruation, assist digestion and liver function, as a sleep aid and to relax the nervous system.
