Leonurus cardiaca, the lion hearted, has a long history of use for struggles of the heart, both physical and emotional as well as related hypertension, hyperthyroidism, and anxiety. It is a well respected nervine with a special affinity for the female reproductive system. Much loved as a cardiac tonic, blood pressure regulator, nervine, and menstrual balancer, Leonurus can be helpful for postpartum cramps, depression, and anxiety, and can be a valuable ally for new mothers in general
Our tincture is made from a glorious patch of flowering Leonurus, slowly extracted in alcohol and distilled water.
Of course, make sure to do your research and consult your health care provider with questions! This plant is sometimes used as an emmenagogue (to induce menstruation), so many avoid during early pregnancy.
