The dampness in early summer is a hotbed of disease. Our forebears thus called May (Chinese calendar) the Month of Poison and Vice, making it a point to drive undesirables away.
Mugwort, thought to carry “myriad blessings,” is a medicinal herb that serves multiple functions. Folk wisdom has it that hanging mugwort outside the door in summer would bring good health, as the smell it gives off is able to remove germs in the air.
When burned, mugwort powder serves to cleanse the room. It can also be used as sachet fillings. When added to bathwater, it speeds up circulation of our qi and blood, wards off colds, and prevents illnesses. It improves sleep quality by regulating our nervous and lymphatic systems.
It also enhances our immune system, eases muscle cramps, and neutralizes free radicals as an antioxidant.
