Valerian Root Essential Oil

With a warm-woody, balsamic, and very musky aroma, our Valerian Root Essential Oil is an aromatherapy specialty oil of the highest quality.
Valerian is derived from a Latin adjectival form of the personal name
Valerius. It comes from the Latin verb 'valere' meaning
feeling good, and
having a good morale, in reference to the medicinal properties of this plant. Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since the time of ancient Greece and Rome. Known to herbalists as 'all heal', Valerian is a warming, sedative herb with bitter principles. Researchers have pinpointed the sesquiterpenes, Valerenic acid, and Valerone as the active constituents that exert a calming and restorative effect on the central nervous system.
