For several days now, I've been taking daily, sublingual extract of mugwort. The rumors of improved dream recall were what prompted me to experiment with it initially, but a general, unexpected improvement in disposition have led me to stick with it (switching my regimen from evening to morning on the way). Whether this is some sort of placebo effect I can't say at this point. But I've also noticed odd random thoughts hitting me several times a day since I've started this regimen. These are subtle, abrupt, and often humorous in a roundabout, "inside" sort of way. Usually they are quite strange as well. I'm not complaining, as I rather enjoy them. I do wonder whether this is a usual "side effect" of mugwort, however. Has anyone else found this stuff to improve disposition or to dislodge odd, random thoughts? Or did I just have a few screws loose to begin with?

Many aromatic herbals will relieve Qi Stagnation, allowing psychic flows to be restored. The effects of this are quite wonderful. Bob Flaws, in a book on PMS, notes that a drop of peppermint oil on the tip of the tongue will temporarily relieve Qi Stagnation that is causing PMS depression. Same principle here, I'll wager.
