We can all agree that we need sleep, a lot of us crave more of it. We basically spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping (or trying to sleep). We are seemingly destined to live a dual life between waking and sleeping, drifting between conscious and unconscious. We dedicate a lot of energy to improving the waking hours of our life, why not do the same with our sleep and why not have fun with it and get creative with dreams? After all, a dream has an infinite effect on our emotions and the way in which we process things. So here we are, getting creative with our sleep with this salve. Designed to encourage you to slip into sleep and dream and to help you hold onto your dreams until you wake. You might be dreaming, but are they so vivid you remember them the next day?
There's not a better word, to sum up this salve other than "magic". The base herb in this plant is mugwort. The Mugwort family is a fascinating group of plants that are shrouded with magic and folklore. In folklore, it is said that mugwort helps the dreamer remember their dreams easier and is also said to help increase awareness during dreams, stimulate lucid dreaming, and increase psychic sensitivity. Mugwort is believed to initiate clarity of the dream experience and bring awareness to the dream’s purpose in waking life. It is known as a visionary herb that opens one to dreams of the future. Doesn't get more magical than that! Mugwort, in traditional medicine, has been used to soothe anxiety, as well as calm people who are recovering from traumas. Due to its calming nature, mugwort is often associated with sleep; however, its effects on dreams are what mugwort is most known for. Artemisia, the Latin botanical name of mugwort, comes from the name of the Greek moon goddess, Artemis. The moon, as a guiding light of the night, hints at mugwort’s abilities to enhance dreams.
According to our herbalist friends, Mugwort is classified as an herbal oneirogen, which is a plant category given to plants that produce or enhance dream-like states of consciousness. Traditional cultures worked with oneirogens to practice the so-called oneiromancy (“divination through dreams”) to seek cures, wisdom, visionary experience, or to cultivate the extraordinary through the ordinary: the dream. Unfortunately, most of the oneirogenic benefits of mugwort have not been scientifically confirmed due to a lack of funding in research. However, over centuries mugwort has been admired for its magical, mystical, and spiritual uses, especially for clairvoyance and warding off evil energy. Regardless of the lack of research-based studies, this unique plant continually shows up in many different anecdotes and literature across time for its dream-enhancing properties.
