Valerian Root Tincture
Valerian Root helps to ease restlessness, emotional stress and pain. It is very useful for promoting sleep and relaxation, and is safe to use during pregnancy and lactation.
Many of our clients have also found this herb to be extremely helpful in calming and balancing their children with ADD or ADHD. They report that the Valerian Root does not make them sleepy but simply balances them out.
Valerian Root tends to be a bit stronger than Skullcap, and like Skullcap, is not addictive or habit forming.
NOTE: In rare cases, Valerian Root can stimulate rather than sedate. If you've ever taken Nyquil and it has stimulated you rather than sedate you, then chances are that Valerian Root may do the same. As an alternative, Skullcap or Goodnight Combo Lite would be good choices. If purchasing for a child, the non-alcohol version is recommended.
Organic Valerian Root. The regular tincture is extracted in organic grape alcohol and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are non-GMO and are gluten-free.
Adults: Use 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) of the tincture as desired. Its handy to keep by the bedside. Children: Use the age-appropriate dose as suggested in the Children's Dosage Guide (see the More Information tab). Do not give to infants. The non-alcohol version is recommended for children.
