Herbs For The Physical and Emotional Heart

Herbs for the Physical and Emotional Heart

Todays blog post is less about “search engine optimization” and more random notes from the heart … with a focus on herbs for the physical and emotional heart.

The health of our heart has always been important, and these last couple of years have been extremely heavy on the heart. It seems the heart has been targeted and been put under strain like never before. More than ever, I have clients coming for alternative methods to the heart medication their doctor must prescribe.

This isn’t about coming off medication, but rather how to support the heart before medication, or going under the knife is necessary. Often times these remedies can also be taken with medication but always speak with your doctor and herbalist beforehand, to decide what is right for you!

A Journey With Reishi Mushroom Back To The Heart Space 

My mentors and teachers agree, that the Reishi mushroom was a herb that showed up early on their herbal journey and was the catalyst for change.

Reishi mushroom is known as the mushroom of immortality and immunity. Reishi is cooling to the mind and gathers calms energy to the heart space. Reishi mushrooms have more than 400 different nutrients. This includes beta-glucans and triterpenoids, compounds that can lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels, which can reduce diabetes and heart disease risk. When I take Reishi I feel grounded, I feel the ancestral wisdom encoded in this mushroom. It is a great tonic to take before meditation or to begin your day. A tincture is often more desirable for taste. If you are making a Reishi tea, it must be simmered for at least an hour to benefit extract the medicinal polysaccharides within the mushroom. This extraction can be a grounding experience as well and is a nice remedy to share with family and friends around you.


Hawthorn Berry is one of the best tonic remedies to nourish the heart when it is depleted and in overwhelm, whether that is physical or emotional. Hawthorn improves circulation to the heart, helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Hawthorn is a cardiac tonic, increasing the health of the heart muscle. Bring hawthorn in as a remedy if the individual has a broken heart, stress on the heart due to stressful eating habits, heart palpitations, or tightness in the chest.

When the focus is on the heart, Motherwort always comes to mind. Motherwort has the ability to calm the mind, especially when we’ve disconnected from life, and have distrust in the universe. Motherwort is like a hug from the universe and a gentle nervine which helps calm the nervous system. When we are too much in the thinking mind,
motherwort allows us to drop into the heart space which brings feminine energy to anyone who may need it whether they are male or female. Bring in motherwort during stressful life changing events and time that has caused trauma and disconnect or grief. For strength in adversity and an overheated mind. One of the most underrated herbs for the physical and emotional heart. motherwort

I love all of these herbs as a tea or tincture, as a nice evening blend, or in the morning to begin the day.

Adding in red medicinal foods like beets, strawberries, cranberries, pomegranates, and kidney beans also strengthen the blood and the heart. These foods, along with the herbs will  forever help us adapt to the evolving world around us.
