Mugwort is the universal herb for protection and prophecy in the dream world. It’s a visionary herb, so it’s often used for divination and ritual practices. While it’s great for infusions, some people mix it with damiana and mullein for smoking blends. I’ve even burned it along with or in place of sage when we sit by the fire outside at night for protection and clearing. It’s a nice herb to burn for meditation practice, as well. Magnificient mugwort also relaxes the uterus to bring on late menstural cycles. This herb is an abortifacient so don’t consume it if you’re expecting a bundle of joy.
