Artemisia vulgaris

Armoise Artemisia vulgaris Mugwort

ARMOISE, vient dans les lieux secs & pierreux sans beaucoup de culture. On la multiplie de semences & de plant enraciné e Mars.

Cette plante est détersive, vulneraire, apéritive, hystérique, fortifiante, propre pour les maladies de la matrice & de la vessie. On se sert des feuilles & des fleurs d’armoise, à la maniere du thé, contre les vapeurs. On en compose un syrop que l’on donne jusqu’à une once dans les potions hystériques & apéritives. L’eau distillée mêlée avec égale quantité d’esprit-de-vin & d’eau de frai de grenouille, desséche & guérit toutes sorts de dartres.


MUGWORT, comes in dry & stony places without much cultivation. It is propagated from seeds & rooted plants in March.

This plant is cleansing, vulnerary, aperitif, [anti-]hysterical, fortifying, suitable for diseases of the womb* & bladder. We use mugwort leaves and flowers, like tea, against vapors. It is made into a syrup that is given up to an ounce in hysterical and aperitif potions. Distilled water [mugwort tea] mixed with equal amount of spirit & frog spawning water [fresh pond water], dries up & heals all kinds of scabs.

*Pliny offers two origins of mugwort's Latin name artemisia and suggests that mugwort increases the effectiveness of Bellis perennis L.
