Mugwort relieves painful menstruation, and can bring on delayed or irregular menstruation, it stimulates the uterine muscle. Mugwort lifts depression and its sedative properties can be of use for aiding epilepsy. Its greatest aid is probably that of the digestive system, where it will expel intestinal worms, calm a nervous stomach and aid digestion through the bitter stimulation of the juices. Bruises and chilblains can be helped by a poultice of Mugwort.
Contraindications: As this herb stimulates the uterine muscle it must not be used by pregnant women.
