Mugwort has a mixed reputation among different cultures. In China its medicinal properties have long been used to improve ailments, while in Europe it has been used in witchcraft and black magic. Personally, I find that Mugwort plays a wonderful role during the blending process providing deep, sensual, sweet aromatic notes to botanical perfumery. The hydrosol is exceptional for spraying around the house or environment to shift the energy and clear dense fields.
Traditionally, due to its soothing and relaxing effects, Mugwort has been used to calm hysteric attacks in patients when they occur. Some cases of women with blocked menstruation have had success restarting their cycles using this essential oil Additionally, it can aid in the relief of fatigue, headaches, abdominal pain, and nausea. Mugwort can help to inhibit microbial infections which cause digestive disorders, and has been used to stave off roundworms and tapeworms. Mugwort also stimulates the flow of digestive juices to facilitate digestion. As a diuretic, this essential oil may increase both the frequency and quantity of urination, reducing the buildup of toxins in the body.
Mugwort carries an interesting reputation because of its toxic properties related to its relatively high level of the ketone constituent thujone. These properties are what make Mugwort essential oil effective in some of its traditional uses. In conventional aromatherapy and naturopathic medicine, Mugwort is not recommended to be used internally or externally. Mugwort remains a useful and important natural botanical extract – with care and professional guidance can be added to your medicine cabinet of therapeutic botanical products. While most aromatherapists may disregard this herb as a toxic essential oil, note that if you choose to engage with this essence, Mugwort MUST be used consciously – be aware of the potential risk of toxicity, which is much less concerning with Mugwort hydrosol.
Mugwort essential oil & hydrosol must be avoided during pregnancy!
