July Herb of the Month: Skullcap

Hello Natives! I hope each and every one of you had a safe weekend! Some of you have some time off, correct? Well this month's herb is a relaxing one, so I hope this serves as a reminder to use your time off to relax and do things that make your soul happy! 

Skullcap is a spasmolytic, meaning it decreases or relieves muscle spasms in skeletal and smooth muscle. Because it houses the minerals iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, It can be beneficial for those who deal with restless leg syndrome, muscle spasms, and stress headaches.  

I am currently drinking our blend for the muscular system, Willows Brew. Skull cap is one of the leading herbs used. I love this infusion before bed, as it helps with my restless legs and muscle tension. 

Let me just add that it is extremely important to allow your plant medicine to infuse and be ready for you BEFORE you need it. So if you know you're going to have a long day on your feet and or going to need some soothing muscle relief, be sure to make your infusions ahead of time. I made the mistake of not having it already ready last night so I am benefiting from it this morning.

Depending on the types of herbs used, different infusions require different steeping times. But don't worry, you'll learn all about that in our upcoming ebook that teaches you how to make your own herbal medicines plus more! 

If you haven't already, be sure to sign up for our news letter at www.lifebodynaturals.com to be one of the first to know when we have our official soft launch THIS month! Yup, July is an exciting month for our family and we wanted to be able to share with our Natives what we've been working on behind the scenes. 

We appreciate you!
