Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) is used for menstrual and uterine conditions, as well as in heart and circulation treatments

Motherwort, as its name implies, is a woman’s herb. It has been used in Asia to prevent pregnancy and regulate menstrual cycles. It is used by midwives to help expell the afterbirth, to help get the uterus back into shape after childbirth, to prevent uterine infections and to ease symptoms of postpartum stress and depression. Traditional herbals suggest motherwort for “hysterical” conditions and “meloncholy”. As a relaxing nervine, motherwort helps to reduce anxiety and tension and bring one back to a place of calm centeredness.
