Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)
As it sounds, skullcap is the herbal equivalent of a wearing a protective helmet bestowed by a benevolent botanical / fairy godmother against the bumps and knocks of life. Scutellaria is no ordinary mint, though it is in the mint family. It’s the stuff of dreams, sweet and sound dreams – seriously. Thanks for the heads up, skullcap. Safety first!
As for the dirt on why, how, and when to use this herb, it’s up to you to hit the books / browsers and do a little sleuthing of your own. We’ll be here for you if you need a hand – or an herb – to hold.
