Motherwort – leonurus cardiaca – Ancient Greeks and Romans used motherwort for both physical and emotion problems of the heart–palpitations and depression. In ancient China it was reputed to promote longevity. Contemporary herbalists recommend motherwort as a tranquilizer and for heart palpitations and delayed or suppressed menstruation. Takes the edge off PMS. Useful in menopausal changes. Some research suggests that Motherwort contains chemicals that may reduce blood pressure. Even though considered a tranquilizer, Motherwort contains a chemical, leonurine, that encourages uterine contractions, lending support to its traditional use in childbirth and menstruation promotion. Motherwort tastes very bitter, add sugar or honey and lemon to improve flavor. Should not be given to children under age 2. Persons with clotting disorders should avoid it. Pregnant and nursing mothers should not use this herb. To make an infusion, pour a cup of boiling water onto l-2 teaspoonfuls of the dried herb and leave to infuse for l0-l5 minutes.
