Skullcap is a comforting herb, traditionally used to alleviate nervous tension and exhaustion.
It is used to promote emotional wellbeing and relaxation during times of occasional distress.
Skullcap is used for insomnia, anxiety, stroke, and paralysis caused by stroke. It is also used for fever, high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), rabies, epilepsy, nervous tension, allergies, skin infections, inflammation, and spasms.
For a mild sedative, combine equal parts skullcap, hops and valerian root.
This can be taken as a tea up to three times daily with the last drink taken half an hour before bed.
