Throughout history Motherwort has been known as “The Mother’s Herb” Used to soothe tension and ease pain during menstruation. Eases crampy, suppressed or challenging menstruation and often brings fast relief. Motherwort also has a way of bringing on suppressed periods, so pregnant mothers should seek professional advice before using this herb. It is a tonic for the nerves, heart and circulation, so it helps with the tension that many women experience with PMS. Both Men and Women can benefit by taking Motherwort for insomnia, tension, nervousness, restlessness and over-stimulated heart conditions. Motherwort combines well with Hawthorn as a heart tonic. Motherwort has a nurturing demeaner and a special affinity for women. Nicholas Culpepper once wrote: ““Venus owns this herb and it is under Leo. There is no better herb to drive melancholy vapours from the heart, to strengthen it and make the mind cheerful, blithe and merry…It cleansethe the chest of cold phlegm… It is of good use to warm and dry up the cold humours, to digest and disperse them that are settled in the veins, joints and sinews of the body and to help cramps and convulsions.”
