Nerve tonic. Skullcap leaves and flowers are excellent for reliving anxiety, nervousness and muscle spasms. Good for treating nerve damage, Skullcap feeds and nourishes nerve tissue on a deep level. For nervousness, try before public speaking events, first-dates, or before that important job interview/presentation. For sleeplessness make a tea with Skullcap, Lemon balm and Catnip.
Prefers fertile soils. Tolerant to shade. Skullcap plants go dormant in winter and will come back in spring.
