For restful sleep, relaxful mood, and, for some, lucid dreaming.
Mugwort, also known as wild wormwood, chrysanthemum weed, St. John’s herb, and simply “dream weed,” has numerous health benefits. It can soothe muscle and joint aches and pains, improve mood, and aid relaxation.
Mugwort is said to induce lucid dreaming, and has been used to stimulate inspiration and creativity at the subconscious level. By itself, Mugwort is mildly aromatic, restful, and adds a mild herbal fragrance. We have teamed the mild mugwort aroma with pachouli oil for this soap, which adds an earthy tone.
Mugwort is grown organically on our farm in Groton/Mystic, CT and is combined with olive, coconut, palm, and castor oils in a traditional hand-crafted saponification process. Olive oil softens and moisturizes the skin. Coconut oil produces a cleansing soap. Palm oil helps harden the bar, so that it lasts
longer. Castor oil produces good lather.
To benefit from the relaxation and dream quality aspects of our mugwort soap, it is best to use shortly before sleep, rest, or meditation. Take a warm or cool bath depending on the season. Breathe deep of the aroma while lathering. Before sleep, get comfortable and take long deep relaxing breaths. If you desire inspiration from your dreams, such as for writing or painting, go ahead and let your subconscious mind know of your wishes by meditating on them as you drift off. Be ready with a pen and paper, as you may be surprised at what you come up with in the first few minutes of waking.
Our process is supported by 25 years of experience in organic and medicinal chemistry. We apply the same attention to quality and detail to our soap as we do to our syrup and other Turkeywoods Farm products. We believe you will be happy with the quality.
