Motherwort Herbal Tincture - Motherwort Tea

Motherwort Herbal Tincture - Motherwort Tea

Motherwort is indigenous to the British Isles and is an herb that has a long and esteemed history as a heart tonic. Traditional Chinese Medicine also holds many of the same attributes for Motherwort with the addition of giving it the power to give long life. Being a traditional herbal remedy of the British Isles Indigo Herbs has included Motherwort in the form of an herbal tincture and an herbal loose leaf tea for all to enjoy.

The ancient Greeks employed this herb as the best that could be given to women during childbirth. Beating stress and anxiousness Motherwort was used to help lower the tension of the nerves giving women a better chance of survival. Nicholas Culpepper emphasised Motherwort as being great for all conditions of the heart giving it restorative abilities for curing loneliness and heartbreak. Traditional Chinese Medicine gives many of the same attributes mentioning also that Motherwort is very good for increasing longevity. There is even a legend relating the tale of a village with a stream running through it that was the source of all the water for the people who lived there. The banks of the stream were lined with Motherwort plants which seemed to give the people of the village abnormal length of life. The average life span was 130 years old with the oldest village resident reaching 300 years of age.

The Latin name for Motherwort ‘Leonurus cardiaca’ refers both to the look of the plant and its medical abilities in aiding the heart. Leonurus means ‘lions tail’ which relates to the flowering spears of pink blooms which can make Motherwort reach heights of around 5 feet tall. The leaves are a distinctive part with a three pronged shape that looks a little like a ducks foot in the early stages. As the leaf ages they become more serrated and large. The plant has an overall fleshy appearance with many white hairs covering the whole surface area of the leaves and stems.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Motherwort Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Manufacture Process

All leaves that are used in this Motherwort tincture have come from mature Leonurus cardiaca plants. The leaves that are used are rigorously checked to ensure that all are fit for purpose and totally free form pollutants. The leaves then undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
