Valerian is an herb that has been used historically throughout the world for thousands of years. The strong smell of the root makes it easily identifiable. It is said that its name derives from the Latin word valere, meaning "all heal", because it was so commonly used for a wide variety of ailments. Valerian is approved by the German Commission E for normal, restful sleep.
