Pray over spring water from the heart, something like this, “Beloved water, I am (Full Name) I come before you in a humble manner with thanks and gratitude in my heart for your help and healing. I love, respect and appreciate you. It is my understanding that you were put here on Mother Earth from the beginning of creation and you are an important part of creation, you are the life force or blood of Mother Earth. You cleanse, purify and protect all life. I therefore ask that you use your sacred medicine to cleanse, purify and protect me, as I bathe in, and drink this sacred mugwort tea. Thank you beloved water.”
Then boil the water.
Before adding the Mugwort (at least 1 cup dried or 2 cups fresh herbs to 1 gallon of water) to the boiling water, pray over Mugwort in this manner. “Beloved Mugwort, I am (Full Name) and I come before you in a humble manner with thanks and gratitude in my heart for your help and healing. I love, honor, and appreciate you. It is my understanding that you were put here on Mother Earth with an important reason, purpose and function, you are a master healer, your medicine can heal us on all levels, mind body and spirit of energetic blocks that cause stress and health issues. I ask that you use your good medicine to heal me (state health problem) and clear the stress surrounding my (health problem). Thank you!
Steep tea, simmering, for at least 20 min but no longer than 45 min. Just before going to bed: Leave out 1 cup of tea. Add the remaining tea to your bath and soak, submerging your body, for 20 min. Place Mugwort leaves on parts of your body that need healing. Do not rinse off, pat dry. Drink 1 cup tea, you may want to dilute it, before going to bed. Do not throw away used leaves, respectfully bring them outside and place under a tree or bushes.
