About: This lovely, blue flowered woodland plant prefers to grow near or in shady wetlands here in the northeast. Almost invisible in the places it grows, skullcap can also be grown in the home garden. In mid to late summer, we watch for this quiet beauty on our woodland and wetland strolls, nibbling on its leaves as we walk. Considered a cooling, relaxing and restoring herb, Skullcap is one of the finest plants for use in supporting the entire nervous system. Fresh Skullcap Extract calms the spirit, restores the nerves, promotes clear thinking and refreshes one after illness or long term stress.
