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 support pain during childbirth and when used for several days after birthing, can help avoid 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 benefit ing longevity, thus the expression, "Drink Motherwort to the despair of your heirs". The Japanese have a Motherwort festival on the ninth day of the ninth month called Kikousouki. During this time Motherwort flowers are eaten in rice and added to saki.
Motherwort is an excellent herb to benefit heart function. It inhibits blood platelet aggregation, lowers blood lipid levels, lowers high blood pressure and calms arrhythmias.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
