Valerian Products

Valerian Products

Here we have the page concerning all Indigo Herbs Valerian products and all the wonderful properties that are associated with this plant. Indigo Herbs stocks Valerian Root Tincture and Valerian Root Cut Tea. Both of these products are of the very best quality and boast some of the best relaxing properties in the botanical world. For over a 1,000 years this ingredient has been utilised by Europeans for a multitude of reasons from de-stressing to getting a good nights sleep. Following in this tradition Indigo Herbs presents to you these two great products.

The oldest historical text that mentions the use of Valerian dates back to 460 BC where its properties were associated with cooking and occult spells related to love magic. Stretching out of Europe Valerian was even used by Arab physicians who heard about the herb through the works of the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates and the Roman physician Dioscorides. In the East some species of Valerian were used to scent clothes and bath water even though the root of the plant has a notorious reputation for smelling bad. Historical records also show that the name of Valerian has changed over time in Europe. Some used to call it 'Nard' while others referred to it as 'Amantilla'. The origins of the popularised name Valerian may of come from two different sources. Some say that it comes from the Latin 'valere' (good health) and others stipulate that it was used by the Valerius and so became famous from his use. 

Valerian is a perennial that is native to Europe and that can grow to about 2 feet high and more than a foot across. The flowers are white that can blend to a pinkish/purple and bloom in June. Growing in damp grassland areas this plant has dark green leaves which are covered in hairs underneath. The root is greyish brown and has no odour when it is fresh. When the leaves or stem are broken it is not uncommon for cats to be attracted to the smell.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

The botanical ingredients can be made into a herbal tea by decocting the herb by immersing in boiling water over a low heat for 10 minutes, this extracts the phyto-chemicals from the bark, root, plant matter. Use 2 cups of boiling water per person.

Serving:

1-2 teasp per cup of boiling hot water of cut herb root to be drunk when needed.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.

Only prime examples of the root are used in our Valerian Root Cut Tea. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are disregarded through a process of elimination.

Good information on the packet about dosage. Nicely chopped roots so I didn't have to bash them up myself, as I had to do with them from a previous supplier.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Valerian Root Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Manufacture Process

Before peak maturity the Valeriana officinalis plants are cut and identified by plant experts before the root is cut away from the rest of the plant. Only prime examples of the roots are used in our Valerian Root Tincture. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are disregarded through a process of elimination. The root material then undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the blend. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added. It is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Not recommended during pregnancy or breast feeding. Can make some people feel nervous, anxious and experience palpitations. If it has been taken for a long time it can cause withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly. Not recommended for those taking barbiturates or benzodiazepine medication

The product itself is fine, no issues with the quality, seems good. However, it arrived with the top slightly open which had caused the product to leak out, Valerian isn't the nicest smelling thing in the world so the box smelled when it was opened and the bottle was all sticky and nasty.

I find this helped me so much when I put 4 squirts into my lemon tea with wheatgrass. Just an hour before I go to sleep, I get proper sleep and when I wake up in the morning I am awake and ready to take on my day ahead. I take this with Chamomile Tincture also 4 squirts.
