I was introduced to Valerian by my mother years ago when I broke up with my first boyfriend and couldn't stop crying for 2 weeks. It definitely helped. Now I always have it in the house for emergencies, when anyone gets upset or when there is a crisis of some sort to calm nerves.
A few drops in some water works straight away. Never need more than one potion. I sometimes chew the root or dried bits when I get the butterflies about anything.
Someone said that Valerian is a mild form of Valium? Is that so? Are the 2 related?
