Mother Wort Tea
Motherwort was commonly used to treat menstrual disorders, vaginitis, heart tonic, and has sedative and antiepileptic properties. It is also used to promote menstrual bleeding and to aid in childbirth, as well as to ease hot flashes during menopause. The herb is most potent right after flowering.
Add loose tea (1 to 2 teaspoons per cup, 250ml) to a teapot, or infuser basket. Pour very hot water (not boiling) over the tea and let it infuse for up to 3 to 5 minutes. Strain leaves from the teapot before pouring. Add honey or a slice of lemon to taste. Enjoy!
