About Mugwort

Mugwort tincture has a prominent use that dates as far back 3BC. Its origins can be traced to geographical areas of Europe and Northern Africa. It then moved to North America and where it has been naturalized in nearly all the states of the U.S, and other areas of North America.

Before the end of the 15th century when hops became a prominent means of flavoring drinks, mugwort was used in conjunction with ground ivy to flavor beer among other drinks. It was decocted into malt liquor after it was gathered and dried in order to arrive at finished beer.
