Mugwort and Lavender Dream Pillow

This pillow combines the soothing, sleep-inducing scent of lavender, blended with the dream-promoting mugwort.

Mugwort (Artemesia vulgaris) is renowned for helping improve psychic abilities and increase supernatural perception.  Many find sleeping with mugwort under their pillow is a great way to help them sleep and encourage lucid dreaming.

Learning about mugwort dream pillows was my first introduction to how herbs could have more mystical uses!

I was so intrigued that there was a whole tradition of mythology and folklore about herbal medicine and mugwort has so much magic.

Even the botanical name Artemisia refers to the goddess Artemis. Artemis was the goddess of many things including child birth and mugwort has always been a great women’s remedy. Mugwort is also blessed of the Virgin Mary and would be offered in Churches on the Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.

She is one of the Nine Sacred Herbs of the Anglo-Saxons which as an Old English charm that you could recite or sing as preparing your medicines made out of these herbs.

‘Remember, Mugwort, what you made known,

What you arranged at the Great proclamation.

You were called Una, the oldest of herbs,

you have power against three and against thirty,

you have power against poison and against infection,

you have power against the loathsome foe roving through the land.’

You can see by the silvery leaves that she is ruled by the Moon. You could incorporate her into a lunar ritual or just pop this under your pillow and go to sleep!
