Mugwort is a beautiful aromatic flowering plant that is used around the world for its medicinal and health benefits. This listing is for 1/4 ounce of dried herb.

Common Mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris, is largely written off in America as nothing more than a weed, but it is severely undervalued by Western Medicine when considering its many homoeopathic uses and benefits.

Mugwort can grow very aggressively and can overtake a garden if given the opportunity. It is typically not planted in most American gardens, although it is highly respected by other cultures around the world as a protective healing herb. Historically, Mugwort has been revered as a magical herb as well, sometimes called the dream herb for its dream inducing qualities.

The roots and the upper parts including branches, leaves, and flowers are used in various tinctures, essential oils, teas, food preparations, smokes and snuffs, and other treatment modalities. Mugwort has many medicinal uses and benefits in addition to its antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is commonly used for:


Stomach and intestinal conditions including diarrhea, constipation, slow digestion, vomiting, and stomach or intestinal ulcers

Smoked as a stop smoking aid for tobacco

Lethargy, lack of energy, and fatigue

Epilepsy and other seizure disorders

Scarring, especially hypertrophic (thick, raised) scars

Soothes itching, can be combined with menthol to treat severe burn victims

Anxiety, depression, and hypochondria

High blood pressure


Joint pain

Irregular menstrual periods and painful cramps

To promote labor

Colic or excessive crying in infants

May aid in the treatment of cancer

Mugwort is easy to use in multiple modalities. Many new users may find themselves pleasantly surprised to discover an unexpected benefit or two.
