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.

Valerian Essential Oil Uses

  • Use it topically on the bottoms of feet.
  • Use Valerian as part of your nighttime routine by diffusing it with Clary Sage next to your bed.
  • Massage it into skin with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex to create a calming environment.
  • Create a foot soak by combining 3 drops of Valerian and 5 drops of Tea Tree with 1 tablespoon of V-6 and 1 tablespoon of salt in warm water. Mix well and soak feet in this luxurious bath for 15 minutes.
