My herbal teacher Maia Toll used to talk of a certain kind of energy, best likened to a cast iron skillet upside the head 😉 You know what I mean.
Motherwort is one of my favorite cast iron skillets. And she has the best name: Leonurus cardiaca, Lion Hearted!
Up close, her flowers look like tiny lion's heads, jaws open in a roar, fangs exposed. She's good heart medicine ♥ and I love her almost even more as emotional medicine. We all need this kind of unconditional and tough love sometimes.
