Mother, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you. This is the ho'oponopono prayer I said for months when I chose to start working through my mother and father wounds. Motherwort showed up later to remind me on a physical and energetic level that I am not alone in this process. Only then will it be possible to find it in your heart to forgive someone else, or yourself. Motherwort works on the cardiovascular, circulatory and reproductive systems to nourish, satiate, tone and rebalance.

Materia Medica:
- Organically homegrown motherwort.
- As it's common name implies, Motherwort is a calming herb that offers emotional support. On a physical level, it eases nervous heart palpitations and generally strengthens the heart muscles, softly 'mothering' your body when it's under serious (or mild) stress.
- Motherwort is used for heart conditions, including heart failure, irregular heartbeat, fast heartbeat, and heart symptoms due to anxiety. It is also used for the absence of menstrual periods, intestinal gas (flatulence), and over-active thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
- Motherwort has a name that gives indication to some of its medicinal properties. Used for uterine and menstrual complaints, motherwort’s antispasmodic and hypotensive actions can be helpful for smooth muscle ailments and parasympathetic cramps. This can be valuable if these symptoms are caused by stress, tension or anxiety. When menstruation is delayed (amenorrhea), call on motherwort’s emmenagogue action to relax the uterus to help stimulate and move the blood flow down and out. Motherwort also has a long history of uses around ovulation pain, menstrual headaches, mood swings, menstrual irritability, and false labor pains. With the plant’s bitter and cooling actions, motherwort is an ally during menopause. When the hormonal cascade is shifting, motherwort can help decrease hot flashes, anger, irritability, headaches, and help stimulate the liver to filter hormones.
- In Europe, motherwort has been used as a cardio tonic in households for generations. The plant's effects are commonly intertwined with the thyroid, suppressing thyroid function when the thyroid is in a stressed and overstimulated state. This can be beneficial to people who’s bodies are more impacted by thyroid stress (rapid transit time, sweating, and nervous fatigue), and less prone to adrenaline induced stress (fight-or-flight), or anabolic stress (5). The latin “cardiaca” indicates the plants benefits to the cardiovascular system. According to David Winston, motherwort can also give benefit to people with hypertension that is induced by stress. This type of hypertension is when the blood pressure rises due to stresses like, having an argument, sitting in traffic, failing a test, etc (6). Being an excellent heart tonic, motherwort can support and strengthen without putting strain on the heart. It is indicated for tachycardia (heart palpitations), blood stagnation, lowering cholesterol, and improving the elasticity of the blood vessels.
