A Wickedly Witchy Crafting Workshop in Celebration of Hallowe’en
Mugwort is the cleansing mother herb of many pre-christian cultures, used as a smudge or a potion to dispel bad spirits and keep the evil ones at bay. Modern and historical uses for mugwort reveal why this potent herbage is revered by maiden, mother and crone alike. Brooms woven from fresh mugwort straws were used to sweep old energy away, making room for fresh magic in homes and altars.
