Originally from central Eurasia, the Motherwort Herb has spread to all temperate areas of the world, mostly as a garden plant, but as an escaped weed, as well. The leaves and flowers of this plant from the mint family are used in herbal medicines, and the seeds are also mixed in Chinese herbal medicine treatments.

The primary chemical constituents of Motherwort Herb include alkaloids such as stachydrine and leonurinine, ursolic acid, flavonoids, quercetin, rutin, bitter glycosides like leonurine, leonuridin, caffeic acid, essential oil, tannins, resin, beta carotene and potassium.

Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy.

For teas with leaves and flowers, add hot water to your herbs, cover and let sit to steep (infuse) for 5-15 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea. Remove lid and strain into your drinking vessel.

For teas with barks, roots and berries, cover and simmer (decoct) the herbs in water for 5-15 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea. Remove lid and strain into your drinking vessel.

Enjoy!
