Mugwort aids digestion via its bitter principal and carminative essential oils. It has a mildly nervine action, easing tension and assisting with depression. It encourages the flow of blood and is a muscle and uterus relaxant and thus helpful during menstruation, but should be strictly avoided during pregnancy. Mugwort has also been used as a liver tonic for chronic conditions such as hepatitis. Inhaling the aroma of dried Mugwort under your pillow induces lucid dreaming!
