Motherwort is a wonderful anti-anxiety herb that is specifically calming to the heart. When anxiety makes you heart beat fast, and panic attacks, motherwort is there. She works her magic almost instantly, which is a rare gift. Her Latin name, Leonorus cardiaca, means lionhearted one. A truly motherly energy; gentle and grounding, lifting out of the doldrums, and breathing patience and calming into the heart.. She is also useful for managing symptoms of hyperthyroidism, though most notably, Motherwort has earned her name as a uterine tonic, a birth aid to strengthen contractions during labor, lending her support during postpartum depletion, depression and anxiety, and also for menstrual irregularities, cramps and moodiness, PMS, delayed or scanty menses, she is a traditional women’s herb, a mother who is there when you need her.
