Throughout history, Valerian has been used for its sedative properties. Doctors in ancient Greece used it for the treatment of insomnia, and it was used in the 16th Century for treating nervousness. During the World War II air raids, the English used Valerian for its calming, stress-relieving properties. Thanks to St. Francis Herb Farm, these effects need no longer remain lost in the annals of history, and you can experience the benefits of this traditional herb for yourself.
