I always found it curious how much the names and even the way some herbs appear to be a refection of their medicine. Such as the way an herb, leaf, or flower can reflect the similar shape of our human body parts, or how the color of the stems of another plant can indicate its medicine for blood. Reading herbs out in the wilderness sure comes with a lot of experience, but over time, the more you learn about nature the more it becomes hard to deny how impeccably undeniable it is that we are a part of nature and god has truly placed everything that we need here on the earth for us.
Lady’s Mantle is a wonderful example of this.
Lady’s Mantle is a herb a that is known to help women regulate irregular cycles, relieve cramps, and help reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. It is also used to promote fertility due to its ability to help regulate cycles. Because Lady’s Mantle has astringent and anti-inflammatory properties it can be useful in treating those who are suffering from loose stools and women who are experiencing menopause.
Because Lady’s Mantle is greatly known for helping provide women with a healthy uterus it is a good herb to take during the 9th month of pregnancy to help with labor. It can be taken with Raspberry leaf which is another great women’s herb for both fertility and menstruation.
