Mugwort

(2 customer reviews)

CAD $8.00

Can be used as a sacred smoke cleansing herb for protection or divination. Used in a ritual context enhances astral projection, lucid dreaming and altered states of consciousness. Some say that simply keeping mugwort under your pillow or in your bedroom will encourage prophetic dreams. (Try making a dream pillow stuffed with mugwort.) Others say you must burn it or smoke it or it can be burned as you use divination tools.

In Slavic folklore it was alleged that if you held it in your hand when asking someone for a favor – they won’t be able to say no. Crowns of mugwort were worn on Kupala’s Holiday (Midsummer) to protect oneself against ghosts, evil witchcraft, and illness. A Russian mother, while helping her daughter prepare the dowry, stuffed her pillows with thyme, oregano, and mugwort. Wise men and women use this herb to contact the spirit world. During Kupala’s celebrations, mugwort served as a love potion and a charm. An infusion of mugwort and periwinkle was used to wash a rifle (after that, censing it with thistle smoke is recommended), so that it would shoot without missing. Mugwort is a necessary component of a magical fire-broom used to protect one’s home against wildfire, as well as for astral travel (for this the broom was used to sweep one’s path between the worlds). In Slavic tradition, mugwort is often interchangeable with wormwood. Collect it on Kupala’s (Midsummer) Eve or on a Full Moon. It could even be used to repel rusalki, the dangerous water spirits of Slavic folklore (Barber 2013: 20). Carrying a simple sprig could ward them off.

Mugwort is used in protective sachets, especially those created in relation to travel. It is said to prevent delays, and other annoyances associated with traveling, as well as to protect the traveler from accidents, thieves and other dangers associated with traveling.

Use herbal water made of mugwort to cleanse ritual tools, especially those used for divination.

Hanging mugwort over or on a door will keep unwelcome energies from passing through. A garland or girdle of mugwort can be worn while dancing around the midsummer balefire and thrown into the fire at the end of the night to ensure protection throughout the year.

    This little package came packed full of the Mugwort! It’s nice and dry – very good quality, indeed! The whole order was packaged well and came quicker than expected, and a small free gift was included – thank you! I am very happy with Witchery.com and will definitely be ordering from here again, and recommending to friends as well. Many blessings! 🙂

    This pack came with a huge amount of mugwort! I was very impressed with how well preserved yet fresh it is! I used it as a sacred smoke cleansing herb for protection or divination. I saw images in the flames of candles and this enhanced my ability to scry but increased focus and also the images were playing like I was watching a movie. It helped me tap into my abilities and go into Trance very quickly, it was amazing. Relaxing herb to burn and powerful cleansing smoke too!!

    I also have been working with astral projection, my lucid dreaming abilities have become stronger and much more frequent. What the witch wrote is completely accurate! “simply keeping mugwort under your pillow did lead to very vivid prophetic & meaningful dream. Thank you!!! Another great buy and the witch gave great advice I had asked around various ways to use mugwort as a first timer, as always, the Witchery is the best!
