Mugwort is an inexpensive herb often associated with psychic power. The most common use for mugwort is cleansing and empowering divination tools. This new moon, treat your tools to a nice reset by creating a simple mugwort brew to clear them of accumulated energy and infuse them with extra psychic power.
To prepare the brew, put three tablespoons dried mugwort in a Mason jar, and pour one cup of boiling water onto it. Let it steep until cooled, then strain through a cheesecloth or strainer into a bowl. Use the liquid immediately, or freeze some in an ice cube tray to thaw and use later.
Dip a soft cloth in the brew and use it to wipe down the surfaces of moisture-resistant tools such as crystals, pendulums, or mirrors. For items that can’t withstand water, such as oracle cards, you can sprinkle a handful of dried mugwort over them for the night and let the magical herb do its work. After using mugwort, you’ll notice that your readings and divinations are more accurate and easier to interpret.
