Valerian Root

Latin Name: Valeriana officinalis

Valerian has a long history of use, and in the Middle Ages it was actually used as a cooking herb in soups and stews, but by the 18th century, it was one of the best known sedatives and was recommended for nervous disorders like fear, panic, and even fainting. Valerian principally acts as a mild sedative and antispasmodic.

Usage: prepare an infusion using 1 heaping tablespoon per cup of water; or 1:1 dry plant liquid extract: 30-60 drops in a little water 1-4 times per day.

**A loving reminder: Medicinal plants deserve a great deal of respect and a strong measure of common sense and a bit of education are always recommended before administering any herbal remedy on yourself or anyone else. Don’t forget to research! Learning about plant id fun.
