OVERVIEW

 

INTRODUCTION

Motherwort is a mint with dull green, hairy leaves and an intensely bitter taste. The botanical name Leonurus refers to a fanciful resemblance of the leaves to a lion's tale. One rather odd Hindu tale relates that if you make a tea of motherwort and add it to the laundry when you wash your socks and underwear, you will bring peace to your home.

CONSTITUENTS

Caffeic acid 4-rutinoside. Diterpenes of the labdane type, such as leocardin, a mixture of two epimers of 8b-acetoyx-9a, l3a, l5, l6-bisepoxy-l5-hydroyx-7-oxo- labdan-6b, l9-olide. Flavonoids; rutin, quinqueloside, genkwanin, quercitin, quercetrin, isoquercetrin, hyperoside, and apigenin and kaempferol glucosides. Iridoids: leonuride and others not yet identified.

PARTS USED

All the above-ground parts of the plant, gathered after flowering, dried, and cut.

TYPICAL PREPARATIONS

Traditionally used as a tea. Frequently combined with hawthorn. May also be taken as an extract or capsule.
