Commonly infused as valerian tea, the roots can also be mixed into herbal tea blends or tinctured. Valerian promotes natural relaxation and helps in coping with stress.*
The roots have a pungent odor, considered unpleasant by many and sometimes compared to the smell of sweaty socks. Cats are highly attracted to the scent in the same way that they are catnip, having a tendency to bite the root and rub against it.
