Mugwort Smudges

Making mugwort {Artemisia vulgaris} smudges out of plants from my mugwort garden in my parents backyard.

The smell of mugwort before you go to sleep helps to bring about dreams that are more vivid, lucid and foretelling of the future. It is also the herb of moxa, a TCM technique that makes use of the smoke for pain relief.
