Product information

The name valerian (Valerianaceae) comes from the Latin word 'valere', which means health.
The herb was used in Anglo-Saxon times for calming down the nervous system in case of over-stimulation. The Incas used it as massage ointment.

The valerian root is known for its relaxing and calming qualities.


Valerian root is often used as a muscle relaxant and mild tranquillizer. The herb might have positive effects on the central nervous system. It is used to help reduce anxiety and overexertion.

Valerian root is often used to reduce sleeping problems. It helps to fall asleep quickly, without feeling dazed when waking up. The herb is especially useful for people who are so over-active they have trouble relaxing. Valerian root can calm you down when feeling nervous, but does not interrupt the power of concentration.
Many students use the herb during their exams.

Please note that for some individuals it may take two to four weeks until there is any improvement in sleeping pattern and mood. At high doses it could give you the feeling of 'floating on air'.


Valerian can be used as tea. Mix a few table spoons in half a liter water and let this boil gently for 5 minutes in a closed pot.This is important because the healing vapours should not escape. Let it cool down and drink it with a little honey.

Another way to use it is to prepare 50 grams as described above. Let the tea evaporate slowly until a sticky residue remains. This can be used in small doses.

Another common way to prepare Valerian is to let 1 teaspoon soak in a cup of cold water, covered and placed in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours. This way none of the essential oils will evaporate.

When mixed with hops (Humulus lupulus), valerian yields a potent tea for inducing sleep.


For some people the herb has a stimulating effect instead of a relaxing one. In this case it should not be used.

With intensive and long term use it can cause headaches and restlessness.
