More about Valeriaan

Valerian can reach a height of 200 cm and has pinkish-white flowers, giving off a strong scent. Valerian has a long history of medicinal use.

Romans and Ancient Greeks

Valerian was already used in Roman times to reduce cramps. The Ancient Greeks hung a twig of Valerian in the house to ward off evil. In the Middle Ages, valerian was an ingredient in the kitchen and in various perfumes and incense. It was also used against the plague. The name valerian probably comes from Latin. 'Valere' means 'in health'.
In the 18th century, Valerian was used for its soothing properties. Valerian was used in epilepsy, fever and general tranquilizers.
When in the First and Second World War many soldiers got traumatized (Shell Shock), they were treated with valerian.

Rest, sleep and pain reduction

Valerian is used medicinally as a sedative. It is used for cramps, insomnia, headaches, anxiety and tension, epilepsy. Also with physical complaints including shoulder and neck complaints, nerve pain and intestinal complaints (cramps). It is also used for menstrual pain.

Fun fact

Valerian has, like catmint, a great attraction to cats. There are extracts of valerian available that are used to make a 'scratching post' more interesting for your pet, so he is less likely to go for the curtains or chair legs.

Usage

Boil 5 mins in 1/2 liter water for tea
