Valerian Essential Oil Product Details

Ingredient In: LeQuietEssence, LeStefanie
Botanical Name: Valeriana officinalis
Country of Origin: China
Extraction Method: steam distilled
Part Utilized: root
Plant Family: Valerianaceae
Aroma: Valerian root has an earthy aroma, which is much more pleasant than the aroma of the fresh root would lead you to expect. I think the fresh root smells like a dead mouse in a very dirty sock!! The essential oil has none of that aroma!
Cautions: Valerian, as a single, should be avoided during pregnancy and by children. There is some documentation indicating that overuse may cause lethargy, but in low doses or in blends, valerian appears to be non-toxic and non-irritating to most people.
