About Skullcap: We hand harvest flowering skullcap plants from Avena's biodynamic garden and immediately tincture them in organic alcohol. The name skullcap refers to the tiny cap-like buds which fairies have been known to wear to sleep. Several beds of American skullcap grow on our biodynamic farm. It is a very special herb that nourishes and strengthens the nervous system, relaxes the musculoskeletal system and digestive system, eases menstrual and menopausal stress, and promotes restful sleep.
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
