I love this stuff.
It truly can be a Mama's Helper.
I took Motherwort 5 times a day, during my first 2 weeks Post-Partum. It helped my hormones tremendously. Every time I started feeling weepy and a little out-of-control, I would look at the time and realize I had missed a dose.
I seriously had NO Baby Blues. Unlike after my first Birth. It was amazing.
Saturday, I was feeling frazzled and anxious and so I reached for Motherwort. The new tincture of Motherwort I had made was finally ready.
I took 20 drops and felt calmer within the hour.
Motherwort (part of the Mint Family) is also great for PMS symptoms and Menstrual Cramps. I think I need to start taking it, along with drinking Red Raspberry Leaf Tea during my Period.
Gotta love the Mints!
