Chinese Motherwort Leonurus Japonicus Seeds
Packet of 150+seeds of this very hard to find, medicinal and ornamental herb!
Most often called Yumucao, which means “beneficial to mothers” in its native range of Korea, Japan and China and SE Asia.
It is also know by the names Honeyweed, Chinese Motherwort and even “Little Marijuana”, due to it’s general appearance and it’s naturally strong sedative and pain killing actions.
Very easy to grow, beautiful pink flowers, not unlike the rest of the Leonotis family.
Tea and smoke blends are impressively sedating in effect, and I must say I was rather surprised the first time I came across it. Superior to Leonotis leonurus, and much faster to grow.
I found this data online>>>
“Motherwort is emmenagogue, nervine, antispasmodic, and laxative. It is usually given in warm infusion in amenorrhoea from colds; and in suppressed lochia we have found it superior to any other remedy. Also useful in hysteria and chorea (King).
The extract is recommended in nervous complaints, pains peculiar to females, in irritable habits, delirium tremens, typhoid stages, with morbid nervous excitability, all chronic diseases attended with restlessness, wakefulness, disturbed sleep, spinal irritation, and neuralgic pains in the stomach and head, and in liver affections.
It is adapted to cases of nervous debility with irritation, nervous unrest, tendency to choreic or spasmodic movements, pelvic and lumbar uneasiness or pain, bearing down pains, and the irritability due to female disorders.”
There you have it folks, another great herb for the collection. Medicinal, very fast and easy to grow and beautiful.
Perfect for pots!
Grown by me and the Mrs organically, no chems, no nasties, no problems!!!
