Just By It’s Looks…
It’s always interesting to me how an herb, often just by the way it looks, gives an idea of what it’s good for.
Skullcap is the color of soft twilight, and that’s exactly what is needed when our nerves are jangled, and we face another sleepless night. We need that soothing restful feeling that normally comes at the end of a wonderful, but busy day.
Skullcap is a member of the mint family, and can be gathered in late summer all through North America, using the flowers, leaves and stems for tincturing or drying. Personally, I prefer a tincture.
Skullcap has been used for trouble with sleeping, anxiety, even stroke paralyses.
