Benefits of Motherwort for Calming the Heart and Relieving Anxiety
When we talk about the heart in modern times we most often think of the muscle in our chest that is responsible for pumping blood throughout our bodies. In older times, and for many herbalists today, however, the heart is more commonly associated with emotional and spiritual qualities. The terms of being “heart broken,” to “lose heart,” to put your “heart and soul” into something or being “sick of heart” illustrate this association.
Motherwort’s actions beautifully show us the connection between the physical and spiritual heart. It is often used when there is a rapid, fluttering, or pounding heartbeat (palpitations) associated with anxiety or nervousness. Through this, we can see that it acts on the physical heart by decreasing palpitations and mild hypertension while also acting on the spiritual heart to soothe and calm anxiety. An additional benefit of motherwort is that it is calming without being overly sedating.
There is no better Herb to drive melancholy vapours from the Heart, to strengthen it, and make a merry cheerful blithe soul.
~Nicholas Culpeper, The English Physician - 1652
Benefits of Motherwort as a Women’s Tonic
As the common name suggests, motherwort has long been associated with aiding mothers and women. It has a strong history of use in both Europe and Asia. Chinese physicians have reportedly used their own species of Motherwort (Leonurus siberica) for menstrual problems for at least 1000 years.
[Motherwort] calms and soothes the nerves for overworked mothers who could use some mothering themselves.
