Motherwort, Leonurus cardiaca, feels like crawling into the lap of a loving mother or grandmother. It strengthens the heart and cardiovascular system. Her name, Leonurus cardiaca, means "lion hearted." This courage that comes from being deeply held, and loved, and seen is the special magic of Motherwort. Besides being cardioprotective, helping to bring down the blood pressure, relieving stress, aiding sleep and soothing the hormones of menopause, pms and the post-partum period, Motherwort also aides in moving through grief and more deeply experiencing feelings of love and care.

I generally start any tincture with 5-10 drops in a bit of water. Wait 15 minutes and see how you feel. You can take another 5-10 drops in water every 15 minutes until you feel the effects of the tincture in your body. Keep track of how many drops you have taken before you notice the effects, this is your body's dose of the tincture.
Motherwort is safe to take three or four times daily or just once in awhile as needed.
