Valerian is a perennial plant, native to Europe and parts of Asia. It grows in meadows and woodlands within moist, temperate climates and has since been naturalized in North America. Valerian has pleasant, sweet-smelling flowers and pungently aromatic roots. Commonly infused as valerian tea, the roots can also be mixed into herbal tea blends or tinctured.
Valerian promotes natural relaxation and helps in coping with stress.*
