A 1:3 Tincture of Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) flowers and leaves, in alcohol. Available in a 30ml (1oz) or 50ml (1.7oz) dropper bottle.
Our favourite use for Motherwort is to help alleviate anxiety. In our experience, very few other plants have such a fast and profound effect on anxiety and agitation as this one does. Among its other traditional uses, it’s been employed as a heart tonic in cases of cardiac arrhythmia, as an emmenagogue and for difficult PMS, to treat hot flashes and mood swings in menopause, as a hormone balancer, and in thyroid conditions.
Motherwort is counter-indicated in pregnancy.
The tincture is a handy way to keep this herbal helper close to you, for when you don’t have time to make tea! It’s also a bit easier to take than the amazingly bitter Motherwort tea.
