Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca). Excellent tonic for the uterus, heart, and generative organs. It helps relieve menstrual cramping and brings on late menstruation. It promotes a heavy flow when it breaks up stuck clots that cause pain. Women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is helpful with painful cramps and the anxiety that may arise as a result. It contains compounds that stimulate the release of oxytocin (our “love” hormone), and is a uterotonic, meaning it “tones” the uterus to help reduce future cramps.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale). Often said to relieve menstrual cramps and period pain. Not just a possible solution for menstrual complaints, ginger has also been found to quell post-surgery nausea, relieve osteoarthritis pain, and aid in the prevention of morning sickness.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium). Can be used to treat bleeding, wounds, heavy menstrual periods, ulcers, uterine and hemorrhage. It can also be used for blood in the urine, and bleeding from the bowels.
Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). Regulating the menstrual cycle. Mugwort is the herb to turn to for those who struggle with an irregular or scanty period, especially during times of stress that can wreak havoc on reproductive hormones. Mugwort is an emmenagogue, meaning it brings on menstrual flow.
Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides). Well known as a remedy for women who suffer from painful menstrual cramps. Blue cohosh is used as an emmenagogue to stimulate menstrual flow, promote blood circulation in the pelvis, therefore can help relieve irregular menstruation, difficult and painful periods.
Parsley (Petrosilinum crispum). Parsley is a mild emmenagogue (an herb which stimulates menstruation). Parsley is mildly aphrodisiac.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum aromaticum). Effectively helpful at keeping menstrual cramps at bay. Also lowers the incidence of menorrhagia or increased menstrual bleeding.
