Sage Moon Apothecary's Motherwort Tincture is a seasonal product and is available in very limited quantities. It was made from motherwort growing in our gardens in Seal Harbor, Maine and therefore is limited to a very small supply.
Motherwort is an herb for the heart and the nervous. It is often the herb of choice for symptoms such as palpitations and strengthening heart function. It is mildly sedative and can help promote relaxation without promoting drowsiness. It has been used to help lower blood pressure and to stimulate menstruation.
Primarily known for it's beneficial properties for women, motherwort may be helpful for many women's health issues, including uterine cramps associated with weak menses, water retention and bloating, and relieving symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes and mood swings.
Historically motherwort has a long history as a heart tonic herb. Nicholas Culpeper stated that "there is no better herb to drive away melancholy vapors from the heart, to strengthen it and make the mind cheerful". In an Italian medical text dated 1548, it was said to be "useful for palpitations, pounding heart, spasms, stimulate menstrual bleeding, urine flow, and to purge stones from the kidneys."
Recommended dosage is 5 to 20 drops twice daily or as needed. It may be added to liquids and taken in this way.
