Citation: SHOSHO. "35 Minutes Into a Cup: An Experience with Mugwort (exp108916)". Erowid.org. Sep 12, 2018. erowid.org/exp/108916
I am about 35 minutes into a cup of strong mugwort tea. Not so strong that it is opaque, yet it is a strong brew. I put a 2 gallon pot 1/4 full of mugwort leaves and filled it with water then boiled it, left it for a day and then boiled it again, and then let it cool and am drinking it cold. So, it was brought to a boil - let sit for 12 hours - then brought to a boil - then chilled.
I am experiencing a genteel euphoria. I feel calm and non-reactive. I also feel like my life and the decisions I make are real, and I feel calmness about my Path.
It has a beneficent effect on my stomach, and I also have this sense that Mugwort assists in my awareness. I seem to be more aware of the earth and its messages, and also of the phenomena of my mind, soul and also the guides. I believe this is so because mugwort is indeed a magical plant, as most, if not all are. I'm guided to use it wisely as it is an anti-parasitic.
In sum, I've drank 1 cup of the strong brew and plan to leave it there, meaning, I will wait until bedtime to drink the other cup I have poured out. It is the early evening, 7:33 PM EST.
