Hey herbies! Want to earn HIVE for commenting and/or posting about medicinal plants? Welcome to the Herbal Engagement challenge!! Anyone can enter - even if you are new to the featured herb, and are just experimenting and discovering!!
Last week's featured herbs were lavender, kava kava and valerian. Sadly, we only got two valid entries for this challenge, but happily, both were fabulous! Don't miss @edprivat's post on smoking lavender here and @kyleana's post on oils, massage bars and repellents made with lavender. Both win a beneficary each on this post so vote away to support their fabulous efforts! Everyone who commented on the challenge post also won an upvote on their comment from us!
One of @edprivat's suggestions last week was for MUGWORT. I do suspect he might smoke it, but mugwort has some other uses too. In Europe, mugwort most often refers to the species Artemisia vulgaris. Wormwood is a type of mugwort - Artemisia absinthium. So whilst the thumbnail separates 'mugwort' and 'wormwood', what we're really looking to discuss here is anything 'artemisia' related!
Some ideas to discuss - in the comments or a post of your own!
- A recipe - medicinal, nourishing, or otherwise
- The history of the plant
- Research and/or studies
- How to grow
- Your personal experiences with this plant/plants.
If you're copying information straight off the internet, we're not likely to reblog or upvote, and might even mute, so please don't be offended - just know we are much more interested in original content. You don't have to be an expert - you might just be contemplating this plant in your local environment, or responding to what you read.
