About Motherwort: This pink flowering herb is beloved by bees and women, and like a good friend in times of need, she supports us with her beauty and strength. Here in Avena's biodynamic gardens, motherwort grows prolifically near the rose garden. When in bloom, the roses and motherwort flowers are humming with honeybees and bumblebees -- truly a heart-healing experience to observe the bees amongst these herbs!
We harvest the flowering tops from our gardens in July and tincture them in organic alcohol. Motherwort is beneficial to women in many ways. It gently strengthens the female reproductive system, soothes menstrual and menopausal stress, supports healthy cardiovascular function and eases occasional stress due to busyness and overwork.
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
