Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)
Want to impress your herbal friends? Riddle them this: before beer was flavored with ____ it was flavored with ____. Insert hops first and mugwort second and you’ve got a nifty truth and the explanation behind mugwort’s name. More poetically, we can also refer to this dream-pillow staple as Artemisia after the goddess of young women, moons, mountains, and the wild (but then we’d have no riddle). Cheers! And sweet dreams.
