Mugwort, otherise known as Artemisia Vulgaris, is a root-based plant that has been used in traditional herbal medicine for centuries in many Asian countries to relieve menstrual cramps, improve blood circulation, and as a liver tonic. In skin care, Mugwort is hailed as one of the best K-beauty ingredient for sensitive skin. So, what makes Mugwort so special? Good question! Mugwort is widely known for its anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory features, making it ideal for all skin types, including sensitive, acne-prone and dry skin. Apart from those, applying Mugwort on your skin can also have anti-aging benefits, as it stimulates the production of collagen and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines which leaves the skin looking supple, healthier and glowing.
Okay, we get it, you have understood the theory part and are KEEN on knowing how to incorporate this perennial herb into your daily skin care routine, so let's jump straight into that!
First, you need to cleanse and tone your face with a cleanser and toner that suits your skin type. This way, your skin can easily absorb the nutrients from the rest of your skin care routine steps.
The Essential Multi-functional Essence
I'M FROM Mugwort Essence contains 100% top quality Mugwort extract from Ganghwa, Korea, that can moisturise and soothe irritated skin, detoxify oily and acne-prone skin, as well as recharge moisture to revitalise dry, aging skin.

We have three recommended ways to use this Mugwort essence. As an essence, you can simply apply the essence directly on your skin after cleansing and toning. If you would like to let your skin luxuriate in this magical ingredient a little longer, you can use it as an essence pack by soaking cotton pads in Mugwort essence and leaving them on your face for about 5 minutes before removing and gently patting it dry. Alternatively, you can pour some Mugwort essence into a spray bottle and use it whenever your skin feels dry.
