About This Product
Valerian Essential Oil
Valerian is a perennial flowering plant native to Europe and Asia with a documented history of use extending back to ancient Greek and Roman times. Described by Hippocrates in detail, both the herb and the roots were traditionally used for a variety of purposes and conditions. Valerian essential oil can be used topically or aromatically to create a welcoming and restful environment that prepares you for sweet dreams.

Diffusing Blends with This Oil
These are approximate drops. Adjust recipes to your needs. If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops. Do you need more? Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.
Tip: When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired. You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils. Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils. These diffusers are safe to run all day. Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing. Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water. For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
