Motherwort and a blend of plant remedy essences from the Archeus gardens team up in this oral drops blend to give you a helping hand with hot flashes, stressed nerves and sleep disturbances as you travel along the menopause journey.
Motherwort is a traditional remedy for women and a fabulous ally for women during menopause. It will help reduce hot flashes (or flushes depending on what you like to call them!), relieve rapid heartbeat (that is the 'cardiaca part of its botanical name coming to the fore), soothes stressed nerves and can help support deeper sleep. American herbalist, Susun Weed also reckons that daily use several times a day can improve vaginal elasticity and bolster libido.
We've teamed motherwort tincture with motherwort plant essence to further enhance her ability to help reduce the stresses and strains of this often challenging life transition. We feel that motherwort works on an energetic level to help with courage, to calm the heart and to enable one to feel confident and secure in one's own skin. Silver Birch essence brings the soothing calm protection of 'the Lady of the Wood' and Violet Leaf cools and soothes emotions around our sense of womanhood, fertility and mothering. We especially like the support of mothering because so many women going through menopause are also seeing the children leaving the nest around the same time, which can create big questions around 'who am I now I am no longer needed all the time as a mum?'.
When not to take motherwort - we suggest that if you are trying to conceive, that you best not take motherwort because she can bring on a period. Also' do not take her every day if you have fibroids or endometriosis.
To take: take 20 drops morning and night or as needed (e.g if feeling a bit stressed, overwhelmed). You can take them neat by popping a dropperful into your mouth, or you can add them to water or juice, kombucha etc.
