Skullcap is a great herb to take as a tea or extract to help with nervous tension and anxiety. It acts as a mild sedative and can be taken over long periods of time, helping to strengthen ones nervous system.
We hand harvest our skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) which we grow on our farm. Once dried we take it off the stem and keep the leaves and flowers as whole as possible.
Skullcap makes a pleasant green tasting tea, nice to blend with Milky Oats.
