Valerian Root comes from the Valerian plant (Valeriana officinalis), a plant native to Europe and Asia, and later introduced to North America. Valerian got its name from the Latin word for “well-being.”
In the garden, Valerian is easily identified by the pungent aroma released when its roots are exposed. It’s believed that the word “pew” originated from the foul odor of the valerian root, which a first century AD Roman physician, Dioscorides, called phu. The oil contained in the dried root can be yellowish-green to brownish-yellow depending on the soil where the plant is grown.
Early European Physicians looked at Valerian Root as a wonder herb. The Greek physician Galen recommended Valerian Root for insomnia in the second century AD and Valerian Root has been used as a sleep aid for over 1,000 years. Millions of people throughout the world rely on it to help them get a good night’s sleep without morning grogginess.
