Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca)

Join me among my motherwort patch!
The lion-hearted! She is heart easing, emotion soothing, anxiety reducing and provides relief for menstrual cramps.


Fresh motherwort (above-ground parts in flower)
100-proof vodka

Tear up the plants into small pieces. Fill a jar with it. Cover the plant material and fill the jar completely with vodka. Wait 6 weeks or more before decanting it.

Put 10 - 13 drops or more (up to a huge dose of one teaspoon) in any amount of room temperature-to-hot water or tea. Warm or hot liquids tend to be more helpful for opening up congestive conditions. Drink your motherwort and take some deep breaths to help your womb soften. If you can apply a hot water bottle to your belly, do that too. That can be a great help for easing menstrual cramps, and is nice to sleep with. If your cramps are not relieved in 10 - 15 minutes, repeat the tincture dose every 10 minutes until relief is felt. Repeat as needed. You could also put 25 - 50 drops in your water bottle and sip it throughout the day.
