Mugwort - in the Artemesia family. Enhances dreams and dream memory. It can be eaten as a bitter digestive before meals. Helps regulate menstrual cycles. Invasive plant. The underside of the leaves is silvery / white.
I think this is goosegrass or cleavers. In the middle ages they used it for bedstraw. This makes a very good foot soak as it softens the skin and dry spots. It is suppose to help diminish tumor growth on the skin inside and out and if I remember correctly has no bad side effects.
I like this id-ing plants on line. Good practice!
