How it works

  • Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) has a long history of traditional use as a calming, sleep-enhancing plant, from around the 2nd century, to modern day! 
  • Though studies attempting to understand the effect of Valerian on the body aren’t conclusive, the proposed mechanism of action supports valerian’s calming effect due to its multiple indirect interactions with gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, an amino acid that acts to suppress the nervous system. 
  • Valerian helps to support the function of GABA by promoting its production, inhibiting its metabolism, and promoting its binding to specific receptors. Overall, these interactions may promote a calmer nervous system. 
  • With this information, it comes as no surprise that this root is considered a nervine — one of a group of plants that are traditionally known to have a soothing and supporting effect on the mind and nervous system. 
  • Do you occasionally find it difficult to relax or fall asleep? If so, this traditional herb may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

Have A Question? Great, Ask Us!

Really. We are here to answer any question you may have.

Why make a glycerin-based herbal rather than alcohol-based?

These botanicals are made through dynamic processes, extracting heat-sensitive compounds with glycerin. This allows for more bioavailability of the organic compounds found in the herbs that would otherwise be denatured and rendered inert by alcohol. Additionally, by making our tinctures alcohol-free, we aim to make a more inclusive product for all!

What are calming herbs?

Different calming herbs, such as adaptogens or nervines, function differently in the body. Calming herbs may support your health by promoting feelings of calm and ease, assisting your body in returning to homeostasis.

What’s the difference between Valerian Root and Melatonin as sleep aids?

While melatonin is a hormone produced by the body that aids in your sleep cycle, Valerian Root is an herb that may provide sleep-inducing effects.

What is a Nervine herb?

Herbs which are known to soothe and support the nerves are called Nervines. These calming herbs soothe the mind and support the nervous system.

What is the content of Valerian Root in this product?

While this is a proprietary blend (and thus we cannot disclose the amounts of Valerian Root in the product), this is also just a difficult question to answer! Most of our herbal products are glycerites, which means that the botanicals are steeped in glycerin to extract the beneficial constituents and compounds contained in the botanical(s). Rather than thinking of it like a recipe, where a certain amount of x is added to y, it may be easier to think of it like a tea bag steeped in hot water. The tea it produces doesn't contain what was contained in the tea bag (otherwise you're drinking small bits of whatever was in your tea bag!), but the steeping process pulls flavors, aromatics, and various compounds from the bag of tea. The process of creating a glycerite herbal product is similar to this!
