Mugwort, also called St. John's Plant, Felon Herb and Common Wormwood, is a member of the daisy family that is distributed throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Prior to the use of hops as material for fermentation, mugwort was commonly used in beer-making, often in combination with other herbs and flowers. Now, as then, dried mugwort is almost always preferred to fresh, and is harvested when the plant is in flower to ensure peak potency. Today, mugwort is most commonly added to herbal tea blends and used to make ointments, salves and tinctures. The herb is also reputed to repel moths.

Mugwort, also known as Common Wormwood, St. John's Plant and various other names, is a European herb noted for its fuzzy leaves.

Although mugwort is often encapsulated or used to prepare teas and tinctures, the herb is also compounded with other herbs and resins to produce ceremonial incense. John the Baptist, who lived in the wilderness of Judea, reputedly carried the herb for protection. Mugwort is also a traditional material for herbal sleep pillows. It is also said that placing dried mugwort under the pillow will promote lucid dreaming.
