Mugwort, also known as Common Wormwood, St. John's Plant and various other names, is a European herb noted for its fuzzy leaves.

Although mugwort is often encapsulated or used to prepare teas and tinctures, the herb is also compounded with other herbs and resins to produce ceremonial incense. John the Baptist, who lived in the wilderness of Judea, reputedly carried the herb for protection. Mugwort is also a traditional material for herbal sleep pillows. It is also said that placing dried mugwort under the pillow will promote lucid dreaming.

mugwort herb

Mugwort is a perennial herb with a long history of use. As such, the herb is known by many alternative names, not the least interesting of which include Felon Herb, Sailor's Tobacco, Naughty Man and Old Uncle Henry. But the most commonly used “other” name for mugwort is common wormwood.

The long, hairy stems of this plant is a common sight in pastures, meadows and roadside patches where nothing else seems to grow. In fact, because the herb isn’t fussy about its habitat it’s considered to be an invasive nuisance weed by many.

Mugwort has been used as a potherb and tea additive for centuries. At one time, before hops became the standard, the herb was used in beer-making.
