Valerian Root essential oil is useful in a diffuser blend to help promote deep relaxation before sleep. It can also help to focus scattered energy and quiet the “mind chatter” of a hectic lifestyle. Due to its pungent scent, it is best used as part of a blend.
To quiet mind chatter or to inspire inner calm, add 1 drop Valerian Root, 3 drops Neroli or Petitgrain, and 4 drops Litsea (May Chang) to the wick of a personal inhaler.
