    Motherwort is a prickly perennial that can reach heights of up to 5′.  In ancient Greek times it was given to pregnant women to calm their nerves during pregnancy.  In China it was used to promote longevity and it was introduce to North America after the 19th century as a menstruation promoter and afterbirth expeller. 

    Several species of the plant have sedative properties and can be used as an anti-anxiety remedy.  Studies done in China have shown that it decreases a rapid heartbeat.  Other uses include regulating menstruation, improving fertility and aiding in the relief of post-partum depression.
