Valerian oil is extremely relaxing and soothing. It is particularly good for insomnia and nervous disorders.
Valerian has a pungent aroma, which can be lifted by blending with Roman or Moroccan Chamomile, Patchouli, Lavender, Cedarwood, Sweet Orange or Mandarin.
To encourage a restful night's sleep, try 1 drop of Valerian, 2 drops of Roman Chamomile and 1 drop of Lavender blended with 10ml of Coconut oil. Massage this gently all over the body, then lie back in a warm bath to allow the blend to soak into the skin.
Contraindications: Possibly sensitising.
