Valerian Essential Oil 5ml
In aromatherapy, Valerian is mostly valued for its relaxing action on the nervous system. It is the perfect oil to treat 'the jitters' and is highly effective for hysteria, panic, anxiety and even shock, as well as insomnia, tension, restlessness and nervous exhaustion. It releases tension that has become locked in the smooth muscles and can be used in all cases where nervous tension results in cramps and blockages. Thus, it may also be effective in aphrodisiac blends for people who suffer frigidity or impotence caused by fear and inhibition. Use with caution. Do not use in strong concentrations. Avoid use over long periods of time.
Valerian can be used for exorcism and counter magic. It is said to protect against lightening and the evil works of witches. Valerian is an herb of peace, if two people drink valerian infused wine from the same cup they will immediately stop arguing and fighting. Valerian can be used as an offering to the Goddess Bast, or to delight your feline familiar or ally. Valerian is sometimes used as an aphrodisiac, though its action is relaxing rather than stimulating.
An earthy-musty, dark, balsamic bitter-sweet scent. Blends well with Patchouli, Oakmoss, Pine, Petitgrain, Lavender, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang.
