Valerian Root Herbal

Valerian Herbal tea is made from the root of the plant. It’s perfect for people who struggle falling asleep and it will also help you to experience the uninterrupted sleep we all crave. Valerian has a strong and characteristic smell.

Valerian has been used as a medicinal plant for over 2000 years. It is most regularly used as a sleep aid. Some people find it useful when withdrawing from using pharmaceutical sleeping pills. The herb is also used to calm anxiety and hysteria. Adding valerian to your bath water can help with restlessness and anxiety. The Chinese have also used the herb to heal injuries and treat menses as they define the herb as being able to also ease pain and stop bleeding.

Most often it can be found on the banks of water, wet meadows and in moist forests. Other names used for this plant include garden valerian, garden heliotrope, setwall and all-heal.
