Root and Breathe.
1 fl oz / 30ml
One of my favourite herbs, Motherwort, was used to cure ‘hysteria’ once upon a time. It was also said to provide protection against ‘wykked speritus’. This wicked spirit was simply the powerful, loving force that women hold in their wombs, hearts and hands; their inner knowing perhaps, their voice of truth.
Sitting with Motherwort and tuning in; touching her beautifully textured leaves, spiky seeds, her red stems… one can begin to feel a sense of calm and ease. Similar to taking a few drops of her tincture.
Motherwort begins with the womb. It goes there first, pulling us to the ground, to rootedness, to the mother within. Then, working up to the heart and she slows the quickened pulse, releasing the grip of anxiety before proceeding to the head where she reminds us to breath and find our inner voice.
Similar to our WOMB TONIC, but as a single herb rather than a combination and without apple cider vinegar.
Motherwort is used as a mild sedative, easing anxiety and stress. Due to its relaxing effect on muscles, it is also used for muscle spasms and as heart tonic. It also relaxes the the uterus, allowing blood to move out and flow, eases menstrual cramps and it helps regulate menstruation. It's used to ease headaches, PMS and menopausal symptoms. Motherwort is also a bitter herb and also therefore a digestive aid.
