Mugwort's botanical name "Artemisia" comes from the moon Goddess Artemis to whom this herb was sacred. Artemis was revered as a Goddess of fertility, creativity, and psychic ability. Mugwort's lunar feminine energies offer powerful protection and cleansing, while aiding in the strength of one's psychic abilities. Burning Mugwort before sleep helps enhance states of lucid dreaming, creating a more vivid dreamscape to help one tap into the subconscious mind for intuitive guidance. Mugwort sprigs can be placed within the home to protect against negativity, bad luck, and ill will. 

Mugwort (Artemisia spp.)

Set your intention, and give thanks. Begin your Prayers and light the pointed end of your bundle with flame. (earth & fire elements). Once the herb bundle is mindfully lit, gently blow out the flame. The smoke carries your prayers & intention during cleansing. To preserve the herb bundle or reduce the amount of smoke, you may also use a small amount of the leaf and place into a shell (which represents water), or other fire-safe dish (no wood/plastic that could burn). A ritual bowl can also prevent embers from falling onto self & belongings. Some choose to use a feather fan or single feather to help direct the smoke (honoring the element of air). When done, extinguish the lighted embers in a bowl of sand and offer a prayer of gratitude. If using indoors, please be sure to open a window or door so that the energies may be released from your Sacred space upon completion.
