Weeds vs. PMS: The Weeds Win!
Despite its humble reputation, mugwort is much more than just a weed, It's easy to find, equally at home in moist and dry environments, and beautiful when in bloom. Herbalist Amanda Crawford shows us how she brews mugwort also known as Artemisia Vulgaris -- into a PMS tea. Mugwort is a nerving relaxant, and it also improves your body's ability to absorb minerals, and helps you get rid of excess water weight. (Note: Mugwort is healthy in moderate doses but pregnant women should consult their physicians before taking it.)
