Mugwort has long been considered an herbal ally for women with particular benefit in regulating the menstrual cycle and easing the transition to menopause. The common name may be from the old English word moughte meaning ''moth,'' or mucgwyrt, meaning ''midgewort,'' referring to the plant''s folk use to repel moths and other insects. Mugwort has a long history of folk tradition and use. Anglo-Saxon tribes believed that the aromatic mugwort was one of the nine sacred herbs given to the world by the god Woden. It was used as a flavouring additive to beer before hops became widely used. Mugwort is considered a magical herb, with special properties to protect road-weary travellers against exhaustion. The Romans planted mugwort by roadsides where it would be available to put in shoes to relieve aching feet. Some of the magic in mugwort is in its reputed ability to induce prophetic and vivid dreams when the herb is placed near the bed or under the sleeper''s pillow.

In a clinical trial, crushed fresh mugwort leaves applied to the skin were shown to be effective in eradicating warts. Supplied in large jar for decorative storage or to make ideal gift.
