Magical Uses: Place mugwort in the shoes to gain strength during long walks or runs.
For this purpose pick mugwort before sunrise, saying:
Tollam te artemesia, ne lassus sim in via.
A pillow stuffed with mugwort and slept upon will produce prophetic dreams.
Mugwort is also burned with sandalwood or wormwood during scrying rituals, and
a mugwort infusion is drunk (sweetened with honey) before divination.
The infusion is also used to wash crystal balls and magic mirrors, and mugwort
leaves are placed around the base of the ball (or beneath it) to aid in psychic workings.
When carrying mugwort you cannot be harmed by poison, wild beasts, or sunstroke,
according to ancient tradition. In a building, mugwort prevents elves and "evil
thynges" from entering, and bunches of mugwort are used in Japan by the Ainus to
exorcise spirits of disease who are thought to hate the odor. In China, it is hung over
doors to keep evil spirits from buildings.
Mugwort is also carried to increase lust and fertility, to prevent backache, and to
cure disease and madness. Placed next to the bed, it aids in achieving astral projection.
Smoking: Many ancient cultures smoked mugwort to promote vivid dreams. It also produces a very mild psychotropic effect while you’re awake. This herb is a light smoke with a pleasant, slightly sweet flavor.
