Annual mugwort - although it comes from the Far East - has long been available in our pharmacies as a dried herb. Mugwort seeds are also available from specialist retailers so that annual mugwort can be grown in your own garden without any problems.

So whether annual or mean, it is definitely worth paying more attention to mugwort. Because all the positive properties of the old medicinal plant are far from being revealed. For example, it is currently suspected that mugwort - together with teasel (a type of thistle) - can also be extremely helpful in treating Lyme disease. Our ancestors worshiped the powerful mugwort as the "mother of all medicinal plants" for a reason.
