Mugwort (lat. Artemisia Vulgaris L.) is a plant that blooms from July to October. It often grows along roads, in ditches, by rivers and in areas overgrown with weeds. It prefers loamy, slightly alkaline and nitrogen-rich soils. Mugwort has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It supports the digestive system, helps with stomach aches and is good for the liver, which is why it is used in the kitchen. It cannot be used in large amounts because it is then toxic. In ancient times, it was believed in the magical powers of the plant, including that it wards off evil and protects against witchcraft.
