What's it good for?
Valerian root has been used since ancient times to promote tranquility and improve sleep. Interestingly, the name "valerian" is derived from the Latin verb valere, which means "to be strong" or "to be healthy." Unlike its delicately scented flowers, valerian root has a very strong, earthy odor due to the volatile oils and other compounds responsible for its sedative effects. Valerian is most commonly used for sleep disorders, especially the inability to sleep (insomnia).
