About Skullcap

Skullcap is also known as Scutellaria, and it is a Latin word that refers to the outlook of the sepals during the fruiting period. Traditionally, the foliage of this particular herb had been steeped to develop a tonic or tea. Utilized by other tribes and the Cherokee of North America to improve menstruation, skullcap was used in the ceremonial switch of young girls to womanhood. The Cherokee also used decoctions and infusions of skullcap roots to deal with diarrhea, kidney problems, and breast pains. The Iroquois used an infusion of the powdered roots to keep smallpox and also to keep the throat clean.

In North American folk medicine, skullcap was utilized as a sedative, and a nerve tonic, or maybe "nervine," and skullcap tea was drunk for anxiety. Because of the soothing, relaxing effects, skullcap evolved into a favorite therapy in the 1700s for rabies or hydrophobia, resulting in the common name mad dog weed. During the late 19th as well as early twentieth centuries, doctors prescribed skullcap for nervousness brought on by illness, teething, and physical or mental exhaustion; nervousness with muscular spasms; cardiovascular problems of the nervous kind with an intermittent pulse; hysteria accompanied by unrestrained muscular action; tremors; and subsultus tendinum.

The American Materia Medica, Pharmacognosy, and Therapeutics have the following extra applications for skullcap: twitching, anxious twitches, epilepsy, paralysis agitans, and restlessness and irritability with nervous excitability and also sleeplessness. Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, Canadian and American herbalists and naturopaths continuously use skullcap as an excellent nervine tonic, antispasmodic, and sedative.
