Motherwort

Leonurus Caridaca

Motherwort has long been specified for female disorders and as a childbirth aid. Today it is used as an emmenagogue (to promote menstruation). Pharmacologists state that this use of the plant may be valid, but they question motherwort's effectiveness either as an antispasmodic or as a sedative and hense its effectiveness as a heart medicine.

Persons prone to dermatitis should avoid handling motherwort.
