ORIGIN 

Our premium cut and sifted valerian root is grown organically in the United States, without the use of chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers 

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

The all-organic, cut and sifted dried roots appear as brown, fibrous pieces with a distinctive earthy and musky aroma, often described as having hints of damp soil and aged wood.

SCENT 

Dried valerian root possesses a robust and distinctive aroma that is often characterized as earthy and musky. The scent profile includes undertones reminiscent of damp earth, aged wood, and hints of camphor. This complex olfactory experience is attributed to the volatile oils and various organic compounds inherent in the root. While its pungent nature may be off-putting to some, the unique fragrance of valerian root is indicative of its potent therapeutic properties, widely utilized in herbal medicine for its sedative and anxiolytic effects.
