Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)


Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)

Skullcap was introduced in 1773 by Dr Van Derveer for the treatment of rabies, and subsequently became known for its reputed tonic, sedative and antispasmodic effects. In Western herbalism Skullcap is used for for nervous tension due to chronic stress, illness or exhaustion; for neuralgia, insomnia as well as depression.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is part of my Nervous tonic and Stress formula and is used to support the nervous system in cases of chronic stress.
