NOTE: Valerian essential oil is a very strong and obnoxious smelling essential oil. Often referred to as a rotten smell or very stinky feet. You can try to make the scent more tolerable by mixing in other relaxing essential oils. This helps but due to the fact Valerian is so strong it can still be over powering in any blend.
However, Valerian does have great sedative like property that helps to promote a relax state and drowiness. Because of the strong odor we suggest you purchase a small bottle for your first purchase. As if you do not like it, you won't be out much. Remember essential oils and blends are not returnable or refundable.
A simple and wonderful way to use this essential oil is to put several drops in a Nasal Inhaler. About 10-15 minutes prior to bedtime you should take several slow inhalations. As you will find, valerian is very potent and only a few inhalations are all that are needed.
One of our customers reports that inhaling this from a nasal inhaler works GREAT! She works the night shift and sometimes when she gets home in the mornings she is still to stimlated and that this really helps to send her off to sleep easily.
We do not suggest diffusing this essential oil in a full room although you can place 2-3 drops on a Terra Cotta disc diffusers Then place this near the Head of the Bed. Either place on your night stand or place in a Organza or Muslin bag and tie to the Headboard. Do this about 30 minutes prior to retiring for the night.
This will put scent into the room and then if this is too powerful you can remove the Terra Cotta disc to another room.
PLEASE order a SAMPLE 2ml size to begin with, as even though the Valerian can be very over powering. Valerian is known for it's strong scent.
