The Magic of Mugwort (艾葉) & Moxibustion (灸)

Mugwort is amazing and used in traditions around the world. It can be taken orally to warm the womb and alleviate menstrual pain; placed under one’s pillow for dreams; and used externally in Chinese Medicine to warm the body, stimulate circulation and smooth Qi flow, and expel pathogenic influences. This herb also holds teachings of self-compassion, mindfulness and inner nourishment. Let’s explore the ways of magical mugwort, gathered from our Cascade river valleys, for self-care, prevention and alleviation of common ailments. Join us at the Pacific Women’s Herbal Conference on Vashon Island, Sept 20-22, 2019.
