A Powerful Ally for Women's Health and Spiritual Growth

Zola Kojo

I’m Zola Kojo, a Master Herbalist, and I want to share my deep appreciation for mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). This remarkable herb has been a true ally in my herbalist journey, offering potent healing benefits for women’s health and profound spiritual and emotional support.

In Greek mythology, Artemis, the goddess of wilderness and childbirth, is believed to have bestowed mugwort upon humanity. This sacred plant has been revered for inducing vivid dreams and connecting with the divine energy of Artemis. Known by many names such as Felon herb and Riverside Wormwood, mugwort is a perennial herb used in traditional medicine for centuries.

Mugwort blooms from July to September with yellow or reddish-brown flowers. The plant’s parts—flowers, leaves, stems, and roots—are used to make tinctures, extracts, teas, and essential oils. It has also been used as a spice and flavoring agent in various beverages, including beer.

Being in the “right relationship” with a plant means properly and safely using it based on understanding both the plant and your body. It means knowing how to prepare it and perceiving how you feel when working with it. This is how I feel when I work with comfrey—grateful for its gifts and healing benefits.

This unsung herbal hero deserves much more recognition!
