Like a Hug from Mom (Motherwort)
The moment I decided to restart my blog, this post began to form in my mind.
Allow me to introduce the herb that gets me through the day: Motherwort. An under-discussed, under-appreciated herbal remedy. It lulls me back to sleep in the middle of the night. And shepherds me through the most stress-filled days.
Literally "mother - herb (wort)," this plant is also known as lion's tail and heartwort, and in my home, it's a "hug from mom."
Soothes anxiety. Nourishes frayed nerves. Regulates the heart.
And that's just a start. Lots of good benefits for endocrine system and menstrual cycle / menopause. Of course, I'm not a doctor and there are some precautions so definitely do your research. But motherwort has been such a loyal companion to me these past 10 years that I need to make sure I'm giving some PR for this remedy.
