24 Oct Ingredient Focus: Mugwort
Our newest herbal tea blend, Dream, features the powerful dream-enhancing herb mugwort. The herb has been used for centuries to soothe anxiety, aid in sleep, and increase nighttime dreaming. The Latin name for mugwort is artemisia, named for the Greek moon goddess, Artemis. Traditionally, the herb has been used to increase clarity of dreams, promote lucid dreaming and assist the dreamer in bringing understanding to their dreams which may help integrate dreams’ messages into waking life. Dreaming serves an important purpose to the human mind. It allows the subconscious mind to process the troubles and lessons of the day. Mugwort not only promotes dreaming, but may help the sleeper stay asleep longer with less disrupted sleep, increasing the likelihood of sleeping through the night.
