Motherwort is one of those plants that has somehow found its way into native medical lore in every corner of the Earth...from Russia to Romania...from America to Asia. Motherwort is an herb most beneficial to women's health.
It can help relieve pain during childbirth and when used for several days after birthing, can help prevent uterine infection. It also helps relax women who tend to 'over-mother'. It is said to make mothers more joyful.
The genus name Leonurus is derived from a Latin word, leo meaning 'lions' and a Greek word oura, meaning 'tail', in reference to the leaf's shaggy shape - like a lion's tail. The species name, cardiaca is from the Greek word kardiaca, meaning 'heart'.
The Japanese consider Motherwort flowers to be a drink benefiting longevity, thus the expression, "Drink Motherwort to the despair of your heirs".
