Valerian essential oil is used for mental fatigue, lack of focus, overexertion, anxiety, stress, headaches, epilepsy, hysteria, menstrual states of agitation, and menopause. Valerian essential oil has shown to induce sleep in humans at a faster rate than subjects not exposed to the oil.
Improvements in sleep quality were shown in a placebo-controlled study involving 121 patients. Patients were given Valerian root or a placebo 1 hour before bedtime for 28 consecutive nights. Patients were given 2 sleep questionnaires; one that measured the mood scale and another global clinical impression scale. 66% of the Valerian treatment group rated the valerians therapeutic effect as either good or very good at the end of the 28-day trial. This compared to only a 29% equally positive rating by the placebo participants. (Vorbach, 1996).

This oil is a great bedtime addition!
I got this just to test it out since I have chronic insomnia. I figured it wouldn’t smell great since valerian tincture is disgusting as well as the smell of the tablets I have. I’m not sure if it actually helps with my sleep but it’s nice to have on hand.
Glad to find something new for sleep
Valerian EO doesn’t smell that great, but it helps me get to sleep fast. I mix with carrier oil and apply to the bottoms of my feet. I’ve been getting better quality sleep since using this oil!
for those of you who don't like the smell of this blend it with Ylang Ylang or with some oil you do like - or instead of diffusing apply it - I'm like that with Spikenard - but it's a great oil so I just mix it with Vetiver or Ylang Ylang & they all work well together - same with Valerian! Enjoy!
not sure if it really works because I can't stand the smell which is dirty socks and that is not good. so not sure how good it could be if it smelled better.

Going to be honest, this is not a nice smelling oil, but It works! Used the first night on my feet and slept like a baby ! I have blended it with some lavender to mask the scent, still stinky...
So calming. I use it when I'm stressed snd am calmed so quickly
This a very calming, soothing oil. I really like it.
The benefits of this oil are worth the purchase. The smell will take some getting used to for sure. It's a very different smell. Benefits are awesome though!!
I got this and diffused that same evening. I found the aroma to be calming and enjoyable.
i put this on the back of my ears....smells lovely
