Skullcap herb, also known as mad dog skullcap, is a member of the mint family that thrives in the woods and swamplands. It has a bitter aftertaste and to enhance its flavor when using it for tea, combine skullcap with chamomile, peppermint, and similar herbs. Because skullcap is a comforting herb, it's also recommended to be used in combination with herbs known to promote relaxation such as hops and valerian root. One of its health benefits is its anxiolytic properties which are thought to promote emotional well-being and relaxation during times of occasional distress.
