Mugwort, also known as Dream Weed, has long been used for its unique ability to stimulate vivid, lucid, and prophetic dreams. Branches can be hung near the bed, or the crushed leaves and flowers can be put in a sachet or pillow to place on or near the bed or under your pillow. You can also just burn a little before you go to sleep.
Mugwort can be burned on charcoal with resin incenses like Frankincense or Myrrh to bring forth protective and benevolent spirits.
In addition to its use with dreams, Mugwort is associated with psychic powers in general, and is often burned before crystal ball gazing and other forms of divination, and used for astral projection.
Mugwort is also used for protection, by hanging the plant over doorways either in whole branches or crushing the leaves and flowers to put in a sachet, often along with other herbs. Mugwort has been worn on the body to protect travellers from wild animals and thieves, and is placed in the shoes to keep up strength while travelling. Some people rub the plant over their ritual tools in consecration or to increase their powers, particularly divination tools. Mugwort is said to provide safety and protection to those who visit foreign places or venture away from home, and to make journeys more pleasant by eliminating interference in one’s travel plans.
Mugwort can also be used to repel insects by hanging the plant around the home. Place sachets of mugwort leaves in closets or bureau drawers to keeps moths away from your clothes. The fuzz from the underside of the leaves can be used as tinder for starting fires.
