  Valerian (no ratings yet)
Valeriana officinalis, organically grown (but not certified), steam-distilled roots, Nepal.
- highly sedative for sleep blends
- anti-spasmodic
- favorite of felines


Highly sedative in action, this is the least unpleasant version of Valerian Essential Oil that I have encountered. (Valerian has been compared to the essence of dirty socks by some authorities!) Not an oil that one would chose for perfumery, but as an addition to a relaxing “go to sleep” blend it is unexcelled.

Some sources recommend it for use on irritated or couperose skin, however it is an untested oil, and could be a sensitizing agent.

Some sources recommend Valerian in a blend for muscle spasms, as well as Sweet Marjoram and Roman Chamomile. All three have relaxing and antispasmodic actions.

Pet Owner Alert: Valerian is even better than catnip for your feline friends. Put a drop of Valerian Essential Oil on a cat toy and watch the fun!

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 3 to 4 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
