  • Motherwort

    $ 22.00
    Motherwort is named for its healing properties, because nothing says remedy like a mother's love.  Best known for its abilities to settle menstrual discomfort, it can also help regulate a woman's cycle.  Motherwort also helps with delayed labor and post birth cleansing.  Like Lavender or Wormwood, it is a member of the mint family with opposing leaves and squared off stems.  It can grow as tall as 2 meters. Modern medicine tends to view physical cures as separate from emotional healing.  In eastern medicine you find natural remedies because they can connect the various aspects of your healing.  Motherwort is said to calm the emotional self while strengthening the physical body. It also helps with digestion and kidney health.

    $ 20.00
    Wormwood is famous, or rather infamous, as the herb that is put into Absinthe to give it its 'kick'.  No studies show that it gives you a hallucinogenic effect, and yet it still has place in common folklore.  Let's move past the hype of absinthe laden nights, and explain that this herb actually hosts a huge variety of medicinal uses. In traditional medicine it has been used in the cleaning of parasites from the stomach and relieving menstrual cramps in women.  It is classified as a bitter and some say that bitters are the best way to heal and clean the body.

    Wormwood a Cancer Fighting Super Plant?

    Recent studies have shown that the same Malaria fighting benefits are what gives it the ability to fight cancer.  Extracting Artemisinin has been found to kill iron rich breast cancer cells.  The miraculous Wormwood extract of this plant is part of many studies on the fighting cancer cell growth. When you smoke Wormwood leaf, you will not only stimulate your appetite but calm and soothe your nerves because it is known to help with muscle spasms and mild forms of depression. Treatments and cures it is used for:
