Motherwort Matriarch Medicine


Women around the world have reached for Motherwort, as an ally for menopausal years for generations. During mid-life hormonal changes, the rest of your life often gets shaken up as well. Your Soul is stirring and knocking on the door of your heart….this is the time many Natural Healers are reborn. Being of service for the fulfillment of establishing your Divine presence and accomplishing your Divine purpose on earth is the task at hand. It’s time to get on with the important work of sharing your talents while balancing self-care and playtime.

Motherwort helps you relax into your Authentic Self, the inner voice that resonates with your Soul. A few drops of fresh Motherwort tincture added to water or tea, helps you surrender to the heart of the matter.

At this time it is important to learn to accept support. Women’s circles are springing up all over the world for healing oneself and our Mother earth in the presence of others. Earlier in the year I joined with thousands of women all over the world to lead New Moon Circles based on Unify Global Sisterhood. It is very powerful to ride the wave of celebrating life with other spiritual sisters.

I first identified miraculous Motherwort during the time I was writing my PhD dissertation on Phytochemicals for menopausal women in 2004.  I was ecstatic to find it growing in the wild near a barn at my older sisters house in rural New England. While I did not need it then, certainly a tincture that I make with Motherwort flowering tops has supported me and my clients during menopausal and post menopausal anxiety in recent years.



The latin name Leonorous cardiaca Lion-hearted gives us a clue about its power to help us be true to our heart and soul. Let your inner voice roar for the next step of your journey.


If your heart starts racing in the middle of the night and you need the comfort of Mother Source Energy, reach for a bottle of Motherwort and add a dropper or two to a cup of warm water. You’ll find yourself drifting off into a relaxing sleep and perhaps notice less night sweats.

I’m going to end this post with a short video that I took with a Bee gathering nectar and pollen from Motherwort in my garden. Take 58 seconds to Bee Calm and enjoy this clip from my garden to your heart.
