Skullcap is a perennial herb which is native to North America. It grows to about 70cm in height and spreads by running roots. It has many erect branches with opposite pairs of oblong leave sand lots of small blue flowers on the upper parts of the stems.

Medicinally Skullcap was traditionally used as a nerve tonic and sedative. Today it is used mainly for nervous conditions including insomnia, tension headaches and nervous exhaustion. It has also been used to aid in withdrawal from barbiturates, tranquillizers and alcohol.

Growing Conditions

Skullcap will grow in full sun to part. It prefers a well drained but moist position. It spreads by running roots and dies back completely in the winter before shooting away again in the spring.

Your good health is everything

I am currently collecting as many herbs as I possibly can with a view to having a little pharmacy in my garden. Skullcap is reputedly beneficial for all sorts of neurological disorders and mental problems so I had to buy it for my collection. I always buy my herbs from Mudbrick Herb Cottage as they have such a great collection and the herbs arrive in good condition and very promptly too.

Looking good.

Neatly shipped and in good speed too. The plant seems to be thriving, and I am looking forward to making some tea soon. Skullcap is from the mint family and the tea is good for relaxing.
