  • Black Sage (Mugwort) Loose

    Like all sage varieties, Black Sage or Mugwort is a form of artemisia, whose name comes from the Greek goddess Artemis (Diana). 

    This loose form of Mugwort can be used as incense or as a tea.

    Incense Use

    "In their operations of elemental magic, ancient magicians used smudging with laurel branches, mugwort (artemisia), rue, sage, pine, rosemary, etc. Such plants were burned on burning coals. This observance is magnificent. The air is filled with the smoke of plants, the exorcised fire will reflect the will of the operator, and the subtle forces of nature will listen and respond." - Samael Aun Weor, Secret Doctrine of Anahuac

    Tea Use

    NOTE: this is wild mugwort, hand harvested, and packed. It is not processed by a factory or machines, or sorted or cleaned. When used as tea, we advise that you first sift through it to ensure cleanliness.

    Mugwort has traditionally been consumed as a tea "to bring on menstruation, to regulate its normal activity, to regulate suppressed, tardy or heavy menstruation, to fortify the organs, to tone the woman’s nervous system, to combat neuralgia, nervous vomiting, etc." —Samael Aun Weor, Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic

    Native Americans use mugwort in a decoction for treating fevers, cold, bronchitis, and arthritis. Made into a poultice, they would treat tumors, inflammation, bruises, and wounds.

    Some say that mugwort tea aids in dream awareness and memory.

    Includes two (2) ounces of mugwort, cut and sifted, packaged in a reusable, food-grade pouch made from natural Japanese kraft paper with a resealable airtight zip lock closure.

    Earthy smelling incense

    This plant has an earthy smell/feel which grew on me quickly. I sense it as a deep spirit with good intentions. It is a great addition to the regular burning of various resins. Being rather insensitive even I was able to notice and appreciate the contrast. Highly recommend!

    A nice calming herby smell

    You can even use at as tea! :)

    This is a nice incense for cleansing a room or space. It has a mild herbal smell, and doesn't linger.
