Motherwort Tincture


Only 47 left in stock - order soon!

Motherwort ~ Latin name Leonurus Cardiaca translates to Lion’s Heart

There are 2 tinctures available, alcohol-based which is much more potent/concentrated, and Apple Cider Vinegar based for those who desire a non-alcoholic option. 

This Motherwort is homegrown from seed to harvest & put into tincture form with love from my sweet lil' cabin in the woods.  

More on this Herbal Ally:

She is a gentle, yet bitter herb, and though challenging to sip, her bitterness is part of her medicine. Motherwort helps soothe nerves and relieve feelings of stress & overwhelm. She can be especially helpful for treating anxiety that is accompanied by heart palpitations or hypertension. She reduces inflammation and eases hypothyroid conditions. She touches our hearts and reminds us to trust ourselves and our internal compass. Herbalists describe her as the perfect companion for someone who “needs a hug.” By supporting our heart, she can support us in feeling more loved, confident, and connected to our heart’s path. 

Her ability to move blood and release stagnation makes her an excellent “emmenagogue,”  an herb that stimulates the uterus and initiates menstruation. She’s helpful for women experiencing Amenorrhea, or who are simply late on their cycle. She can assist in bringing women to a more regular cycle. This is useful for those trying to get pregnant as they will ovulate more often and predictably. Having a regular cycle is also beneficial to those desiring to *not* get pregnant as they can plan ahead to take extra precautions or avoid sex during their, easier to predict, fertile days. It’s important to note, that if you are currently pregnant (and want to be) you do not want to be taking motherwort in the early stages because a compound called Leonurine will stimulate uterine contractions, which is what initiates menses. 

Clearly, her connection to you will depend on the complexity of your unique timing and chemistry. She will interact with your general constitution or “dosha,” so if you tend to run cold and dry you may not want as much of her as those who run hot and damp, as she is a cooling herb. If you tend to get hot and agitated, then she is perfect for you! All this to say, the relationship YOU build with this potent herbal ally is a personal one and the discovery of your sweet (or in this case bitter) spot should be approached with curiosity, respect, and observation.

Taking the tincture

The alcohol-based tincture is more potent and concentrated, as I used a high percentage of alcohol to pull as much of the spirit of the herb as possible. That said, it's to be dropped into and diluted in a glass of water. I generally pour a small glass, drop in the motherwort, and drink that cup in one sitting.

The suggested amount/use depends on your body and what you are using it for, but generally, you can start with less and then increase as/if you feel. A general recommended dosage is adding 1 full squeeze of the dropper into 2 oz. of water or juice, 2 to 4 times per day. Best taken between meals. You can do that Or you can choose to take more on an as-needed basis, perhaps only at night to help you fall asleep or when needing to ease menstrual cramps.

Want to learn more about Motherwort & her Benefits?

Motherwort stimulates the liver and digestive system by releasing secretions that improve digestion. If you’re having difficultly digesting, you may explore taking a few drops of tincture before your meals. She also helps with poor appetite related to stress and anxiety. As a nervine sedative, she works directly with our parasympathetic, “rest and digest,” nervous system. She has a downward directional force, which helps in releasing, be it bowel movements, menstrual flow, and even labor. Energetically, her downward focus can be grounding and anchoring. She helps direct wind/tension by drawing it down rather than leaving it scattered in the body. She also works with heat/excitation by cooling the internal body and slowing things down. Being a member of the mint family, she is cooling and helpful to ease agitation. Being a mild sedative she is great for relieving anxiety and getting rid of insomnia.

She has a strong affinity for the heart and its connection to the cardiovascular system. Her vasodilation effect helps distribute blood equally throughout our vasculature. She helps open up chest tightness, reduces heart palpitations, and relieves hypothyroid. She tonifies the heart, healthily pumps blood, and relaxes tension in the “bronchial tree”. She improves circulation and assists in lowering blood pressure. M
etaphorically she holds the emotional heart and tangibly strengthens the physical heart.

Hints the name, Motherwort is very connected with femininity and its cyclic nature. It’s connected to the planet Venus, which is beyond me to explain how but is, nonetheless, another association with feminine, fluid energy. Some herbalists say she can aid in healing emotional “mother issues.” Perhaps this stems from the essence the her “mothering” energy or perhaps it’s from her assistance in creating balance in the feminine and mothering aspects within each individual. In any case, Motherwort gives special attention to the uterus and can help us embrace our cycles. Menstruating women with a steady cycle may want to monitor the use of motherwort at times as it could potentially bring your period on sooner than expected. However, if you suffer from panic attacks, the relaxing nervine properties will likely be worth the potential early onset. While bleeding, she can ease the painful process of PMS and cramps.  Women who suffer from Dysmenorrhea (aka painful menstruation) can benefit greatly from the way Motherwort stimulates flow in the pelvis area, while simultaneously calming the system. She helps in menopause too! Active compounds in motherwort help the body to break down and process hormones (especially in the liver), which in turn can help to balance menopause symptoms. She can help reduce the severity of hot flashes and emotionally she can help with the transition into cronehood. 

Overall, Motherwort helps soothe nerves and relieve feelings of stress & overwhelm. She can be especially helpful for treating anxiety that is accompanied by heart palpitations or hypertension. She reduces inflammation and eases hypothyroid conditions. She touches our hearts and reminds us to trust ourselves and our internal compass. I truly hope Motherwort nourishes and opens your heart. I hope she helps anchor your anxious energies and move stagnation through your precious, hard-working blood. She has guided me to share my growing love for plant medicine with you, and I am honored.
