This is a stimulating and warming anti-fungal, anti bacterial herb that aids in easing cramping.  Mugwort also balances our female hormones and stimulates the production of hormones that help to maintain optimum uterine health as well as protecting the uterus from things such as ulcers and tumors. The steam from the mugwort opens up the pores, allowing the beneficial herbs to penetrate into the blood stream.  And finally mugwort helps to stimulate menstrual discharge and ease cramping.
