Valeriana officinalis & Valeriana wallichii

organic valerian

plant overview
the “phu” plant

North America and Europe that is popular as a garden ornamental and hanging plant. Although the scent of the fine, lacey foliage is pleasing to humans, the root of the plant is unmistakably similar to sweaty gym shoes, an attribute that earned the nickname “phu” from the early Greek botanist, Dioscorides. Cats, on the other hand, cannot resist valerian root, and seem to become intoxicated in its presence much like they do when catnip is nearby. Because the compounds in the herb have a much less stimulating effect in people, valerian root is most often taken as tea, liquid extract or in capsule form shortly before retiring for the night.
