Possessing an intensely strong woody and unusual aroma, it is important to note Valerian’s aroma can be unfavorable to some. While it may not smell very pleasant, it is also known as the “heal all”.
Valerian has an extended history since the ancient world as a medicinal herb for nervous disorders and hysteria. It can still be a powerful combative of anxiety and stress.
