-Historically, mugwort has been valued as a highly spiritual plant and used to induce vivid dreams by way of smudging and smoking as well as placing the herb under one’s pillow at night to provide protection during the dreamtime.
-One of the medicinal benefits of mugwort, on the other hand, is that it serves as a nervine, as it nourishes and calms the nervous system.
-Most popularly, mugwort has been used as an emmenagogue, stimulating uterus contractions and promoting menstrual flow. These chemicals are thought to lend themselves to the labor process in childbirth.
-Mugwort also contains the tumor-fighting chemical- artemisinin. It can take several forms, such as teas, tinctures, extracts, poultices, and capsules.
Potential Allergen: Mugwort is related to ragweed and may cause allergies similar to ragweed. Mugwort can cause allergic reactions leading to sneezing and sinus-related symptoms, and it can cause contact dermatitis, or rashes, in some people. People with allergies to peaches, apples, celery, carrots, and sunflowers should avoid Mugwort. Mugwort might also cause an allergic reaction in people allergic to birch, celery, or wild carrot. This has been called the “celery-carrot-mugwort-spice syndrome." Mugwort pollen might cause reactions in people who are allergic to tobacco. Also, mugwort might cause allergic reactions in people with allergies to white mustard, honey, royal jelly, hazelnut, olive, latex, peach, kiwi, the Micronesian nut called Nangai, and other plants from the genus Artemisia, including sage.
Avoid If: Pregnancy and breastfeeding: Using mugwort if you are pregnant is LIKELY UNSAFE. Mugwort might cause a miscarriage because it can start menstruation and cause the uterus to contract.
