Transcription of the video

Valerian is also known as vandal root, all-heal, and St. George’s herb. In European traditions it has long been associated with Samhain and Yule.

Regal and earthy, this herb is associated with paternal protection from external dangers as well as for quelling inner turmoil to achieve deep peace.

The part of valerian that is usually used, both in magickal workings and in herbal medicine, is the root. Its scent is an acquired taste that can add a grounding earthiness to incense blends. In teas, it’s known to be deeply relaxing. Cats are particularly attracted to this herb.

Valerian root has been trusted through the ages as a treatment for insomnia, tension in the body, and nervousness. Its medicinal use goes back as far as the second century, when Galen the Physician prescribed it for the Roman emperor’s insomnia. There are numerous varieties, many of which grow well on the British Isles. As a general rule, the more pungent the dried root smells, the stronger the medicinal and magickal properties.
