The airborne part of the annual or biennial herbaceous plant “Leonurus Japonicus”. This herb enters the blood system and can move stagnant blood, dispel blood stasis, generate new blood, and regulate menstruation. It dispels stasis and promotes generation without retaining stasis, serving as a key herb used before and after pregnancy and delivery in gynecology. It is mainly indicated for various gestational and labor diseases caused by heat accumulation and blood stasis so it is named "mother-benefiting". It also dredges water passage and relieves edema as well as activates blood and resolves stasis. It is mostly suitable for edema resulted from water and stasis accumulation together. For sore and abscess, it is usually combined with heat-clearing and toxicity-relieving herbs such as Jin Yin Hua, Lian Qiao, and Pu Gong Ying.
