Profile: Leonurus cardiaca, a member of the mint family, is a herbaceous perennial native to Central Asia and Southeast Europe. Motherwort, which has been naturalized all over the world, is prized for its calming effects and energetics related to the heart.
It is considered cooling and drying and has been utilized in traditional herbalism for its therapeutic effects. Motherwort can be tinctured or steeped to make a soothing cup of motherwort tea.
Motherwort's leaves are dark green and hairy, with a strongly bitter flavor. The scientific name Leonurus relates to the leaves' whimsical resemblance to a lion's tail. According to one strange Hindu legend, if you make a tea of motherwort and add it to the laundry when you wash your socks and underwear, you will live forever.
