Being one of my favorite herbs, I work with Motherwort almost daily and she has absolutely changed my life! I use her for high blood pressure, anxiety, and as a key ingredient in my Womb & Heart Connection blend. She is valuable for irregular, painful menstrual cycles. She assists in strengthening the heart without causing any strain and relieves tension and anxiety in the body.
I also see great results when working with Motherwort to reduce hot flashes in women going through menopause.
Some people refer to her as "Heart of the Lion" due to her latin name (Leonurus cardiaca) and her affinity for the heart - and honestly when I work with her I feel as though I have the heart of a lion! She helps to remove arteriosclerosis, dissolve blood clots, promote blood circulation. and more!
I believe she helps so much with anxiety because 1) I've experienced that effect myself and 2) she is classified as having nervine properties and supporting various neurotic conditions such as insomnia & hysteria!
Motherwort is to be avoided during pregnancy.
I have this herb available in bulk herb to make a tea with & as a tincture!

This blog is intended to provide information on this herb/remedy/formula that I use regularly in my practice. This blog is for educational purposes only, mainly for people who work with me or my remedies and are looking for the information on the remedies, how and why I use them, and what is in them. There is much more existing information on each herb and remedy and as always I encourage everyone to ask lots of questions and to dive into research for themselves as well as consulting with a professional.
