    I had expected something different....maybe my imagination differed completely from the effect. It was not bad but not what I wanted. I should have read more about it...for me it was too flashy.

Skullcap

Scutellaria Galericulata

Skullcap was used by several American Indian tribes. They strongly recommended it for the relief of headache and related pain. Many physicians of the 19th Century used Skullcap with great success to treat nervous diseases, convulsions, neuralgia, insomnia, restlessness and even tetanus. These uses have continued to present day, but little scientific research has been carried out to understand Skullcap's effects.
