Info: 50 ml Tincture Bottle
Valerian is a tall, flowering grassland plant, with roots long used in herbal medicine to help people sleep when suffering from insomnia. More recently, there are some reports it can help people transition away from benzodiazepines (prescription sleeping pills). It's also been used as a mild daytime sedative to relieve a number of psychological symptoms related to anxiety or stress such as nervousness, edginess, jitteriness or restlessness. Some also use it for reducing menstrual cramps or menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.
