Valerian has long been used as a herbal remedy to treat insomnia and is often known as “Nature’s Valium.”

The Latin name for Valerian – Valere –  literally translates as “to be well" and has been used for thousands of years to support emotional well-being, healing sleep, muscle relaxation, stress relief and more.

During World War II, England’s Vegetable Drug Committee listed Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) as one of the most essential plants for collection because it was so helpful for relieving stress from air raids.

Unlike many anti-anxiety or sleep medications, Valerian doesn’t seem to cause problems with dependency from regular use or withdrawal symptoms if it is discontinued.

Valerian can be helpful for:
  • Deeper, longer sleep
  • Stress support
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Focus, memory & learning
  • Easing menstrual cramps
  • Digestive discomfort
  • Menopause
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Parkinson's disease

And even better, it tastes delicious! I like taking some in my licorice tea in the evening if needed.

Growing conditions - Valerian ideally likes to be in moist soil but she is hardy, and does really well with some afternoon shade.

To harvest - Lift the herb after 2-3 years of growth and harvest the roots, keeping some rooted plants to re-plant again.

All our herbs are organically grown in a recycled or compostable pot.
