Mugwort has a long history of use in herbal medicine especially in
matters connected to the digestive system, menstrual complaints and the
treatment of worms. It might be poisonous in large doses. Skin contact
can cause dermatitis in some people. Probably unsafe for pregnant women
as it may stimulate the uterus to contract and induce abortion.
