Leonurus cardiaca, flowering tops.
We cultivate our own Motherwort, harvesting the tops when the flowers are at their best. We carefully air-dry, and cut-and-sift it, to offer a premium product.
Our favourite use for Motherwort is to help alleviate anxiety. In our experience, very few other plants have such a fast a 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.
