We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

Valeriana officinalis



Also known as Garden Heliotrope, Valerian is a perennial herb whose roots and essential oil are used in herbal remedies. The herb is used mostly for sleeplessness and anxiety as it is a natural sedative and hypnotic. In herbal skin care it is used for eczema, sores, rashes, wounds, swollen joints and ulcers.


Valerian preparations added to bath water are used to aid relaxation and promote sleep.
