Mater Soap - Mugwort Bar
Mugwort Bar is made of ground mugwort and olive leaf to invigorate circulation and warm the body. Coriander and sage essential oils linger on the skin with a bright and clean aroma.
The herb used is mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris, Ai Ye) an invasive weed, which grows in many climates, including Maine. Mugwort has a long history of use in folk medicine. It is believed that the Romans planted mugwort by roadsides to make it available to travelers to put in their shoes to relieve aching feet and protect them from exhaustion. Maybe this is because of its ability to enhance the movement of qi and blood. In Chinese Medicine it is used to treat a variety of issues, like eczema and inflammation. It can be made into a tea or simply placed under the pillow to enhance lucid dreaming.
