“There is no better herb to take melancholy vapours from the heart, to strengthen it, and make a merry, chearful blithe soul than this herb. ”
Nicholas Culpeper



Motherwort Seeds, Official 
Organic : Leonurus cardiaca


Vibrant lavender fragrant blooms on spikes appear in summer over dark green foliage.  The plant is not especially particular about soil preference but does best in a moist well-drained soil and makes a good bedding or border plant for your medical herb garden. The leaves are used to treat an array of complaints including nervous irritability and  heart palpitations.  It is considered a relaxing sedative.
