I've experimented with Mugwort before. I found that it made my dreams more vivid and colorful, and enhanced recall. I also tended to awake feeling
very well rested and clear headed.
It certainly didn't make my dreams more prescient, however. If anything, my mugwort dreams were more surreal and irrelevant to the real world than my
The increased "awareness" in my mugwort dreams suggests to me that it might be a useful tool for lucid dreaming, but I doubt it has any ability to
aid in prescience or prophecy. That's not really what mugwort is for. It's more just for calming you down and giving you a very good night sleep
with pleasant and colorful dreams - not prophetic ones!
Anyways, I highly recommend mugwort for:
a) People who don't usually have/remember dreams, and would like to enhance recall
b) People who dream in black and white and would like more colorful dreams.
c) People who have trouble sleeping, or wake up feeling groggy and unrested.
In tea an hour or so before bed is the best way. Also, if you smoke hookah (shisha) you might consider mixing mugowrt into your smoking blend. It has
a very mellow, soft flavor, and counter-acts the harshest physiological effects of the nicotine in the tobacco (increased heart-rate, etc.), so that
you can smoke right before bed without keeping yourself up.
Mugwort is great stuff. A must have for any budding herbalist.
