Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca)

A weedy, abundant, and pollinator dream plant- Motherwort- Lionhearted in Latin- is a one of our highly esteemed bitter mint family plants. While all bitter mints can help us return to a state of ‘rest and digest,’ Motherwort is specifically indicated for those with anxiety that manifests in the chest: heart palpitations, rapid heart rate, etc. A true ally for menstruating hearts and bodies; this medicine offers both physical & emotional relief by stimulating blood flow, relaxing uterine spasms, tempering emotional lability, and overall lending a feeling of support. Folks with mood swings and agitation related to perimenopause and menopause can also greatly benefit from this medicine. Energetically, Motherwort is for the person who cares for others and is needing a little more support in their own lives. READ: Anyone trying to parent during these times, or ever, ha ha! *
