The Story

Motherwort: Leonurus cardiaca (L.)

Why Motherwort? Nicholas Culpeper once wrote, “There is no better herb to drive melancholy vapours from the heart, and to strengthen it; it makes mothers joyful, and settles the womb, therefore it is called Motherwort.”

A perennial plant indigenous to Central Asia, motherwort is a useful bitter herb, rich in constituents that support a variety of body systems, including the cardiovascular system and female reproductive system.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic motherwort is sustainably sourced in the U.S.A. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.
