I've heard chinese skullcap is good for pain. Has anyone used it or gotten any pain relief from it? Thanks

It didn't work well enough for me on my knee pain, but in my herbal books it is listed as an herb for pain. Also listed are St. John's Wort and Motherwort.

Skullcap has worked great for me for sinus problems because it is an anti-inflammatory and has anti-histamine properties. I take it for allergy season also.

Sean - what type of pain? Is it the jaw pain?

If it's neural pain, Buhner lists Greater Celandine and Kudzu Root.

I took them both for several months...and it didn't work for me...but we're all different.

Taking Kudzu Root, Mother wort , Hawthorne and Chinese skullcap can help with inflammation and pain.

I'm taking a combined tincture for inflammation and the pain in feet from bart. It helps.

Hawthorne 65 ml
Kudzu Root 60 ml
Mother wort 40 ml
Skullcap 55 ml

combined and then I take 1 tsp 3X a day.


I am not a medical expert and just telling you my experience.

It is important to do your own research and check for side effects and contradictions.

Take care, Jo

Haven't used it specifically for pain but one of my persistent symptoms (a feeling of my pulse pounding loudly in my head) went away using it.

I've noticed zero benefit from this one that I can tell since I'm still getting some pretty bad flares.

I just ordered baicalin which is from the root of skullcap. It's supposed to be relaxing and for pain. Hoping it helps for sleep. Anyone try that?

Seems like it doesn't help. Oh well I'll keep looking.

I've been using baicalin for a few nights now right before bed for sleep. It doesn't knock me out. I still need to take about 7.5 mg of zolpidem.

But I think it MIGHT be helping me to sleep more soundly. Guess I'd have to stop the baicalin to see if there's a difference now. Maybe sleeping more soundly because less pain?

It wasn't the magic herb I hoped for but may be doing some good. I haven't tried it in the daytime for pain but I'll try it and come back and report if it does.
