A great herbal remedy for stress relief and general relaxation can be found in the perennial herb, Scullcap. Grown throughout North America, Scullcap has many claimed benefits, from treating rabies, stroke & paralysis to alleviating nervousness, tension & sleeplessness. Though many of these claims remain unsubstantiated by scientific study, Scullcap has been known to be a great herbal for calming the nerves and relaxing the mind. It does produce  a mild sedative effect, so drink with caution. I would recommend steeping a heaping teaspoon into an 8 oz cup of boiling water about an hour before bedtime.
