Mugwort can be seen sprouting up from the hillsides of the British Isles, bearing tall, spiky stalks of pointed leaves and petite flowers. Historically, this plant has had a variety of uses, ingraining itself into the practices and folklore of numerous cultures. It was most notably used for flavoring beer before the introduction of hops, and its name 'mugwort' is believed to allude to this use. In many countries, mugwort was believed to have mysterious, even magical properties. Roman soldiers would often put mugwort in their sandals, thinking it able to keep their feet from getting tired on a long march. Natives Americans used mugwort leaves to ward off spirits and protect their dreams as they slept at night. Mugwort was also thought to provide protection against evil spirits to homes and travelers on the road. Today, dried mugwort flowers are used to make this exceptional herbal tea.
