Motherwort (Leonorus cardiaca)

Oh, motherwort! Such an indispensable herb for those of us with wombs. 

No matter what phase of life you're in, there's likely some way motherwort can support you... and I'm really not exaggerating. 

Motherwort is specific for everything from anxiety + stress (which can often be exacerbated by hormonal shifts), to easing menstrual cramps, to supporting a mama or parent postpartum, to calming a racing heart which is common in perimenopause. 

Truly, an herb for all seasons of our wombs. 

Listen to the episode to learn:

  • why I turn to motherwort often in my life
  • basics about plant identification and growing 
  • similarities between western motherwort and Chinese motherwort
  • historical understandings of working with motherwort
  • modern actions and clinical applications in your own body
  • updates on recent research on motherwort's actions
