Morning all. I've been using mugwort as a dream enhancer with mixed results for a while now. There are a variety of ways to use the herb (smoking/tea/scent bags), but what would you recommend? If you use this herb as a dream aid, what ways work best for you?
Thujone, the compound in mugwort (in all three plants in the Artemesius genus) which affects dreams, is not water soluble. Teas with mugwort will have minimal effect. The best methods to utilize thujone are with smoke and tinctures.
Grind a fair amount, about 1-2 ounces to a fine powder and then add to 8 ounces of local honey.Leave in a cool dark place for a moon cycle and then begin consumption (about a tablespoon) prior to meditation or bed. Not only will mugwort increase dreams it will also help open the third eye and increase skills of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience.
