Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) is the wisdom keeper of dreams. The silvery underside of her elegantly feathered leaves connects her to the inward energy of the moon. Artemis is the Goddess of the forest and the hunt, she knows how to travel well in the mysterious deep woods and is familiar with the beings and creatures who live therein. Mugwort invites you to deepen your connection with your dream maker, to dive deeper into the vivid dreamscapes of your soul and to remember many details of your journey when you return. Rose holds your heart gently during your travels, lavender eases tension and helps to fall asleep. Chocolate mint adds some spice to the tea and harmonizes the energies of the blend.
