Valerian root is a trailing plant with delicate, aromatic flowers and feathery foliage. The root of the plant is also highly aromatic, although it’s reminiscent of well-worn sneakers when fresh.

Most people generally find the herb makes a relaxing cup of tea, or encapsulate the powdered root as a dietary supplement. However, a chemical called actinidine makes valerian root highly stimulating to cats and such a strong attractant to rats that it’s used as bait.

Valerian is a perennial plant that produces cluster-heads of small, trumpet-like flowers. Although the blossoms are sweetly scented, the root of the plant is more reminiscent of old cheese. Yet, this is where the value of the herb resides.

In 16th century England, valerian flowers were commonly used in perfumery, but the botanist John Gerard described the root as being “excellent for those burdened and for such as be troubled with croup and other like convulsions, and also for those that are bruised with falls.” Incredibly, despite the less than pleasant aroma, valerian root was used as a spice during this time.

Valerian root also has a long history of use in countering insomnia and anxiety, but without producing the morning after grogginess typically experienced by prescription agents formulated for the same purpose.
