Valerian root has the interesting distinction of smelling like ripe cheese when freshly dug from the ground, a characteristic that is fortunately downplayed in the dried material.

Due to the presence of a chemical called actinidine, cats find the dried valerian root just as attractive as the fresh and every bit as exciting as catnip. The herb has the opposite effect on humans when prepared as tea or encapsulated.

valerian root

Valerian is a flowering perennial distributed throughout Europe, the Americas and northern Asia. The herb is also known as garden heliotrope today, but has many common names of antiquity. Herbalists of the 15th and 16th century referred to the plant as Setewale, Amantilla, Capon's Tail and Phu, the latter bestowed by Galen in reference to the odorous root.

Modern herbalists recommend a tea or tincture of valerian root for the temporary relief of insomnia, sometimes in combination with hops, skullcap or catnip.
