A cup of mugwort tea can help you to astral travel! Dreams can be a place to play, or they can reveal esoteric information to you. To astral travel and meet spiritual entities or access the Akashic Records, try this mugwort tea recipe!

Mugwort is used to improve sleep quality, ease insomnia, and dream magick to receive psychic messages or astral travel. Mugwort has even been known to help if you only dream in black and white but want to dream in color!

If you have never used mugwort before, go slow at first. Some can be allergic to mugwort, and the effects can be intense!

Before I tell you the tea recipe, I’d like to explain astral travel and why mugwort will help. Let’s get into it!

What Is Astral Travel?

Astral travel, or astral projection, is similar to Out Of Body Experiences or OOBEs. Astral projection is a mystical practice that makes it possible to experience an OOBE intentionally.

Astral projection has been written about in many cultures throughout history. 

When you astral travel, your soul or consciousness leaves your body safely to explore other realms. This allows you to explore different places on earth or to leave our dimension and explore others.

Astral projection is also how many people access the Akashic records and gain esoteric knowledge.

This is a practice that can be learned through meditation, but many find it difficult to astral project without herbs or other substances. 

Mugwort is one of the more innocent herbs that can help someone astral travel.

Astral projection can even be done by accident. As Live Science says:

Surveys suggest that between 8 and 20 percent of people claim to have had something like an out-of-body experience at some point in their lives a sensation of the consciousness, spirit, or “astral body” leaving the physical body. (

While astral travel is similar to a lucid dream, it’s not exactly the same. You should still have control of your body when you astral travel, but you don’t always control everything.

While astral traveling, for instance, you may not be able to turn yourself into a frog like you could in a lucid dream. That’s because you’re experiencing something more “real” than a lucid dream.

How Does Mugwort Help You Astral Travel?

Mugwort or Artemisia vulgaris has been used by witches and healers for many years.

This herb is a member of the daisy family and blooms from July to September. If you plant to wildcraft your mugwort, make sure you are well acquainted with it because it can look like other plants like ragweed.

It’s well known for its ability to incite prophetic dreams and strengthen psychic intuition. Mugwort strengthens our connection to our dreams, which allows us to astral travel more easily.

Some people struggle to astral travel because they wake too quickly – they just don’t have a strong enough connection to their dreams. Mugwort works to heal that problem.

Mugwort has many medicinal herbal actions to be aware of. If you want to avoid any of these actions, don’t ingest this herb.

If you prefer not to ingest mugwort, it can also be burned as an incense. Or you can take the dried herb and put it in a sachet. The sachet can be left under your pillow or under your bed to induce astral travel and psychic dreaming.

Some prefer to smoke mugwort in a pipe. I’ve never tried it, so I can’t advise on that. Seek out an expert’s opinion before you try it!

Mugwort Tea Spell For Astral Travel

This tea is best used about 30 minutes before you go to bed. If you find that this tea isn’t enough to cause astral travel, try taking 5-HTP with it (but be careful, as 5-HTP does have some drug interactions. Discuss this with your doctor first.)

Mugwort tea can be quite bitter. Taken with some honey, it’s more palatable.
