Aromatherapy of the week: Valerian

Image

Valerian (Valeriana wallachi) comes from the roots of a flowering plant originating in India. It is not favored for it’s aroma, but is an extremely powerful healer. It’s benefits include:

  • excellent sleep aid
  • anti-spasmodic agent for muscles
  • a bit of a “happy pill” for felines (please refer to a vet before using)

Mixes well for a nice sleepy time blend with Roman Chamomile and Sweet Marjoram.
