Fresh from this fall harvest and dried, this Skullcap is the most amazing quality you will find!  Grown locally in the Pacific Northwest, and brought directly to our facility, you will find that a little bit goes a long way.  

Blue Skullcap is native to North America, a hardy perennial herb that grows to a height of 2 feet or more in wetlands and damp meadows with partial to full sunlight. The Scutellaria genus includes more than 350 species, many of which are medicinally active, such as the widely used Chinese herb, S. baicalensis, which seems to be very similar to S. laterifolia in its phytochemistry.

Skullcap is traditionally used as a nervine, to aid sleep, to help ease anxiety, and promote general relaxation. In her classic text, A Modern Herbal, Maude Grieve describes this species of Skullcap simply as “one of the finest nervines ever discovered.” It is a key ingredient in our Time Out Tea.
