Mugwort is a perennial member of the Compositae family native to Europe and close relative to wormwood. It has long been reputed to be a woman's tonic, with particular benefit in regulating the menstrual cycle and easing the transition to menopause. The Romans planted mugwort by roadsides where it would be available to passing travelers to place in their shoes to assuage aching feet. St. John the Baptist was reputed to wear a girdle of mugwort when he ventured into the wilderness.
