  • Skullcap

100% Certified Organic Skullcap



A Native American herb, skullcap was traditional taken for menstrual problems. It was also used in purification ceremonies when menstrual taboos had been broken. Skullcap became well known in the 19th-century America as a treatment for rabies, hence its folk name mad dog. Today it is mainly used as a tonic and sedative for the nerves in times of stress.
