Valerian is a perennial flowering plant with sweet-scented pink heads, common to Europe as well as Asia. It is known as a medicinal plant in Tibetan medicine, where it is used to relieve problems with sleeping and feelings of irritation, sadness, anxiety, nervousness and tension.
Both the Greek and Romans were familiar with Valerian’s sleep encouraging properties, and modern western alternative therapies expound its properties in this area.
