Valerian Root (Valeriana officinalis)

Fresh Root ~ folk preparation in organic cane alcohol

At first glance this beautiful plant with stinky pink buds that attract butterflies and ants is seemingly gentle. However, the medicine of Valerian lives in its roots and can be a powerful ally for anxiety and insomnia. They are indicated for those who have lengthy insomnia, taking a long time to fall asleep due to worries and circular thinking. As a sleep aid they can be taken right before bed as well as during the night for folks that experience abrupt wake-ups. A commonly used sedative, Valerian is effective in relaxing the skeletal muscular system and offering pain relief for both acute and chronic situations. This tension relieving quality offers a pleasant warming effect that reduces spasms and allows blood to flow more easily, making them a good support for stimulating menses. *

++ It is important to note that Valerian is known to have a paradoxical effect in some folks- causing agitation instead of relaxation- make sure to try a small amount early in the day before taking it acutely. ++

Nervine. Antispasmodic. Sedative. Anxiolytic. Skeletal muscle relaxant. Hypotensive. Emmenagogue. 

Try out a few drops during the day to see how Valerian lands with you. Not safe for nursing.
