Motherwort is considered one of the greatest healing herbs and holds a sacred place as a plant for women. In Chinese, it is known as yi mu cao, which translates to 'benefit mother herb.' Motherwort is also referred to as Leonurus cardiaca, which has given rise to its other common names: Lion's ear, Lion's tail, and Lion heart. The term 'cardiaca' signifies its traditional use as a remedy for the heart.
This herb is highly effective when taken for a few months, fulfilling its purpose and allowing women to move forward without relying on it. Women, being emotional by nature, experience numerous ups and downs as they navigate the responsibilities and blessings of bringing another life into the world and nurturing others.
Motherwort supports this process by preparing the uterus for childbirth, calming anxiety and stress, and promoting heart health. It has also been found to aid in the treatment of depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, stress, menopausal anxiety, headaches, and sleep disorders, according to research.
Motherwort possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It may also have antibacterial properties and stimulate the uterus. This herb is known to be highly effective when taken consistently for a few months.
