[tab name="Overview"]

Meriwether Lewis made the first collection of elephant head pedicularis on July 6, 1806 in Montana. Since then, it became widely known that the flowers of this plant offered mild skeletal relaxant effects.

Noteworthy: This plant can absorb alkaloids from other plants growing nearby. The plants used in our tinctures are never collected near potentially toxic species.

Elephant Head Betony flowers are most commonly used for joint and muscle pain, or sprains with sharp muscle spasams. Gastrointestinal cramping, menstrual cramping, lower muscular back pain, and muscular "jolts" when falling asleep are listed as some of the uses for this plant.

Known Adult dosage -
For muscle pain and cramping : 1 teaspoon with water every 6 hours or 3 times a day

To promote sleep : 1/2 to 1 teaspoon with a small amount of water before bedtime
