Product Description

Skullcap Herbal Tincture 

Skullcap, aka Skull Cap is a natural way to relax, ease your nerves and get a restful sleep. It helps to relieve "women's complaints," such as premenstrual syndrome and monthly cramps. Skullcap is also considered to be very useful for alleviating the difficulties of alcohol, barbiturate and drug withdrawal.

Used to treat nervous disorders of all kinds, it can calm the nerves, quiet and strengthen the nervous system, and it is a valuable remedy for controlling nervous irritation, excitability, restlessness, hysteria, anxiety, hyperactivity, fatigue, insomnia, night terrors and nervous headaches.

It has been useful in relieving menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome, muscle spasms, symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and cramps due to stress. This herb is also used to help treat St. Vitus dance, convulsions and shaking palsy, and some herbalists use it to prevent epileptic seizures.

Skullcap can be used in cases of lupus and is said to relieve spasms and fight infections without stimulating the components of the immune system that aggravate the condition.

This herb has been given to alcoholics who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms and delirium tremens (DTs). It is believed to be helpful in treating barbiturate, tranquilizer and drug withdrawal symptoms.

Skullcap, an anti-inflammatory and analgesic, it can remedy the pain by reducing inflammation, as opposed to opiates, which affect the brain. Scutellaria lateriflora is a powerful antioxidant that appears to protect red blood cells from free radical damage more effectively than vitamin E, and it also shows some promise in preventing the oxidation of blood fats. It is said that it strengthens the heart muscle, improves circulation and may be helpful for treating cardiovascular disease.

Skullcap has been used to treat snakebites and the bites of poisonous insects. In the past, it was used in the treatment of rabies.

Our tinctures are made with love and in small batches. We use Certified Grain Organic Alcohol and only use fresh and organically grown or wild-harvested herbs cultivated without the use of pesticides, fertilized with organic manure from our own chickens, rabbits and little kinder goats, and the water used is from our private well which is sustained by the Nisqually River. Our tinctures are "extra strength" not like the watered down and dull products found on the commercial marked today. While sampling a good portion our competitor’s products we found that the majority of them use more distilled water than alcohol, and the herbs they use are probably not picked fresh during harvest - which ultimately means there's less of the good stuff. We think you'll notice a difference with our tinctures.

Ingredients: Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) and certified grain alcohol. 1:3 Ratio

Suggested Dosage: Use 6-12 drops in juice or water, under the tongue or as desired. May be taken 3 times daily. Shake well. Store in cool dark place. Keep out of reach of children.

Precautions: Pregnant and nursing women should not use Skullcap. Large doses (many times the recommended amount) may cause giddiness, confusion, twitching and stupor, but the herb works well when taken consistently over a period of time (several weeks). Skull Cap should not be given to children. Those with liver problems should avoid Skull Cap. Taking Skull Cap and blood thinners together may further decrease blood clotting, possibly leading to easy bruising and bleeding. Because of Skull Cap's sedative qualities, taking it with medicines used for sleep or anxiety may cause extreme drowsiness affecting your ability to operate heavy equipment or drive a car safely.

  3. Just what I was Looking For 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2015

    I was looking for good quality skullcap for helping with panic attacks, headaches, and helping us sleep. We found out it helped my mom's itchy skin which must have been caused by some nervous condition. We aren't even taking a full dose, so the skullcap must be fresh. I can't grow it in my garden, so I will buy it from Mountain Maus Remedies.
