Valerian® essential oil
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) essential oil possesses an earthy smell that promotes feelings of relaxation and eases occasional restlessness that can keep you from unwinding in the evening. Diffuse this valiant oil for the perfect bedtime ritual, or massage it into the bottoms of your feet after a long day to foster moments of peace. Valerian is a vital component in D. Gary Young’s Trauma Life™ essential oil blend.
The valerian plant is native to Belgium and Croatia but can now be found growing throughout North America and Asia. One source of Young Living’s Valerian is our Balkan Botanical Farm in Bulgaria. After careful harvesting, the root of the plant is steam distilled; the resulting essential oil contains the constituents bornyl acetate, camphene, alpha-fenchene, and alpha- and beta-pinene.
