Plant Description: Scullcap (or Scutellaria lateriflora), a member of the mint family, is a perennial herb native to southeastern North America, from New York to W. Virginia, and South Carolina, Missouri, and Alabama. It can generally be found in thick woods, bluffs, and along roadsides. Its root is a creeping, short rhizome which sends up square stems. The stems are branched and 6-18 inches tall. The leaves, soft and heart-shaped at the base, grow to be 1/2" to 2-1/2" long, with scalloped or serrated edges. The flowers of Scullcap range from blue to lavender to purple. They are tube-shaped and hooded, and bloom from May to August. The aerial part of the plant is used in herbal preparations.

Use: Make a tea by pouring approximately 2 cups of boiling water over 2 heaped tsp of herb. Let steep for 3-5 minutes. In general, sip a cup before breakfast, and another 2 hours after dinner.

Cautions & Interactions: Keep out of reach of children.
