Traditional Information*

Lady's Mantle has long been thought of as a “women's herb.” It is used to tonify the uterus (especially after childbirth), for uterine prolapse (with Collinsonia, Partridge Berry, and White Pond Lily) and for menorrhagia (profuse menstrual bleeding). This herb can also be used as an astringent to mucous membrane tissue and for an enlarged prostate.
