Mugwort is said to have derived its name from having been used to flavor beer before the wide use of hops. The botanical name is derived from Artemisia, the Greek goddess of the hunt, fertility, and the forests and hills. Roman soldiers were known to put mugwort in their sandals to keep their feet from getting tired. Native Americans equate mugwort with witchcraft. Join us in learning more about this favorite and locally abundant plant ally!
Sometimes learning about healing herbs can be overwhelming. There are so many plants to meet and learn about! Even in one cup of tea there can be a beautiful synergy of a dozen different herbs, flowers, roots and more!
Here at Twin Star we like to think of plants as friends, allies, & partners. Much like new friends, it is much easier and magical getting to know each Plant Partner one by one. Join us in this new monthly event at Twin Star Herbal Education as we take the time to meet one plant ally at a time. We will discuss botany, parts used, actions, energies, traditional uses, essences, remedies and more! There will be visual and tangible examples of the herb, along with various different remedies made with the herb to taste, smell and feel. Each month you will go home with informational handouts, herbal remedy recipes and some dried herb or remedy to experiment with!
This is a great opportunity for anyone who is brand new to the healing herbal world wanting to learn about healing plants and perfect for the budding herbalist to dive deeper in relationship with our herbal allies.
