Mugwort Calming Herb Tea Blend

Sasha Kamen


Mugwort is mildly sedative and useful in calming frayed nerves and easing stress. It is often used as one of the main ingredients in sleep pillows. One traditional use of mugwort is that of a dream herb, and it is said to bring the dreamer more lucid dreams. It can also be used to aid clairvoyance and crystal gazing.
NOTE: Mugwort is sometimes used in medicinal formulations as a uterine stimulant to bring on delayed menstruation and help restore a woman's natural monthly cycle. As with all herbs with emmenagogic properties, it should be avoided in early pregnancy
