Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)  known commonly as blue skullcap, mad dog skullcap, and side-flowering skullcap, is a hardy perennial herb of the mint family, Lamiaceae, native to North America. It has an upright habit, growing 60 to 80 centimeters in maximum height. 

Skullcap is used for trouble sleeping (insomnia), anxiety, stroke, and paralysis caused by stroke. It is also used for fever, high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), rabies, epilepsy, nervous tension, allergies, skin infections, inflammation, and spasms.

Skullcap Herbal Tea

A strong tea of skullcap is strongly sedative. If you are drinking skullcap herbal tea for sleep then drinking a lot of liquid before bedtime isn’t a great idea. I recommend five grams of skullcap infused in 8 ounces of water for 15 minutes. This can be drank an hour before your desired bed time. Total recommended dose per day is 6-15 grams.
