Mugwort with Corinna Wood

Episode Summary

Today marks the first time mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) has been spotlighted on the show. And as you’ll see, this is a plant with a variety of culinary, medicinal, and historical uses! So I love that today’s guest, Corinna Wood, chose mugwort as a focus for our conversation.

As a listener, you also have access to Corinna’s recipe for Mugwort Vinegar. Corinna shares that mugwort is her favorite herbal vinegar because it’s sooooo flavorful! There’s a free, downloadable and printable recipe card available just for you, so you can try out mugwort vinegar for yourself. You can find your recipe card in the section below.

By the end of this episode, you’ll know:

► When to harvest mugwort for internal use and what toxic look-alike is to be sure you don’t harvest by mistake

► How living in tune with nature and the seasons can enhance your understanding of herbalism

► Why it’s important to cultivate an herbal community

► How to work with mugwort to make your dreams more vivid and help you remember them

► A variety of ways you can honor Nature’s cycles within yourself

► and so much more…

A seasoned teacher of holistic healing and women’s wisdom, Corinna Wood is well-known in the herbal community. Corinna founded and directed the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference, the largest herbal conference in the country, which ran for 15 years. She also ran Red Moon Herbs for 20 years. She’s supported thousands of women on their journeys of healing and wholeness. Currently, Corinna has applied principles of the natural world to create tools for inner growth and healing—through an earth-based, woman-centered lens. Today, her offerings are at the cutting edge of synthesizing natural healing with feminist psychology and earth-based wisdom.

In some ways, I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve had the chance to meet up with Corinna, but I’m thrilled it finally happened. And it’s my delight to share our conversation with you today.
