100% Pure Organic Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) Oil
In aromatherapy: Valerian Oil is prized for its powerful relaxing properties. It’s reported that it can assist with sleeplessness, restlessness, trauma, emotional stress, anxiety, and depression. Since Valerian Oil can infuse you with peace and tranquility, diffusing maximum 3-4 drops of the oil can reduce feelings of anxiety and low self-esteem as well as help you get a good night’s rest. If Valerian Oil’s scent is too pungent for your liking, consider blending it with Lavender Oil.
Caution: Please avoid using Valerian Oil in conjunction with melatonin or other medications for sleep disorders as this may produce a strong sedative effect.
In warm baths: Not a big fan of essential oil diffusers? No worries! You can take advantage of Valerian Oil’s sedative qualities by adding a few drops of the oil to a warm bath before going to bed. In addition to this, you can create a lovely stress-relieving bath blend by combining 3 drops of Valerian Oil, 2 drops of Patchouli Oil, and 1 teaspoon of your favourite carrier oil (we recommend Almond, Coconut, and Jojoba).
In massage blends: Valerian Essential Oil can be used in massage blends to subdue over-excitability and restlessness. It’s said that this oil can help treat ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) - a chronic condition that affects millions of children and often continues into adulthood. Additionally, Valerian Oil can lower blood pressure and alleviate menstrual cramps. How to reap these benefits? Just dilute a few drops of 100% Pure Valerian Oil with a quality carrier oil and gently rub the mixture on the affected areas (your chest and abdomen).
Caution: Do not use Valerian Oil if you are already taking medicines to lower your blood pressure levels.
In skincare: Valerian Oil can be helpful in treating various skin conditions, including wounds, cuts, stings, and bruises. This essential oil can also assist with acne, eczema, and boils by inhibiting the growth and spread of certain bacteria. Enrich your daily skincare products with 2-3 drops of Valerian Oil or dilute 2-3 drops of the oil with as many drops of your favourite carrier oil and apply the blend topically.
Caution: Do not apply Valerian Oil to broken skin or open wounds.
