Motherwort Herb Cut (Latin name Leonurus cardiaca) purportedly boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and has been promoted as a treatment that prevents or stops bleeding, as well as a remedy for menopause symptoms, wound healing and high blood pressure. It has been claimed that motherwort can also help treat a wide range of other ailments and conditions. The ancient Greeks used it to reduce anxiety during childbirth.
Motherwort herb cut is commonly consumed as a loose-leaf tea. The bitter taste of the plant is often offset with honey, sugar, lemon, ginger – or other strong-flavoured ingredients. Alongside tea, motherwort can be consumed as a tincture or in capsule form.
Leonurus cardiaca is the Latin name for motherwort, but it goes by many other names, including throw-wort, lion’s ear, and lion’s tail. The plant itself grows up to 1m in height, with the above-ground parts of the plant used for medicinal purposes. While native to south eastern Europe and central Asia, motherwort has over time spread around the world.
