Skullcap is a member of the mint family, and the name is derived from the Latin word scutella, which means “little dish,” as the small flowers of these plants have a dish- or helmet-like shape.
It is thought that American skullcap positively impacts mood and reduces anxiety by stimulating gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that helps calm nerves. Notably, this plant was used in traditional medicine practices as a sedative and treatment for conditions like insomnia and anxiety. In fact, many anti-anxiety medications work similarly by enhancing GABA activity. Skullcap contains an array of beneficial plant compounds, including antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory effects and protect your cells from damage caused by molecules called free radicals.
In spellcraft, skullcap is used to restore oneself after psychic assault, to attract money and abundance, and for peace and tranquility.
Your skullcap will arrive in a sealed bag, in either a half-ounce or ounce.
