Description

A herbaceous perennial that grows up to 1.5m in height and spans 0.7m. Mugwort has an extensive rhizome system, rather than depending on seed dispersal, it spreads through vegetative expansion and the anthropogenic dispersal of root rhizome fragments.

For many centuries, this species has been mainly used for treating gynecological ailments and gastrointestinal diseases. It is said that Mugwort may be useful to stimulate digestion, bring on a normal menstrual flow and to help expel intestinal worms. The dried leaves are often smoked or drunk as a tea to promote lucid dreaming. This supposed oneirogenic effect is reported to be due to the thujone contained in the plant. In India the species is used for its antispasmodic, larvicide, anthelmintic and stomachic properties.
