Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since at least the time of ancient Greece and Rome. The name comes from the Latin “valere,” meaning to be strong or to be healthy.

It has more than 2000 years of documented use and its popularity has only increased with time. Hippocrates described its properties, and Galen later prescribed it as a remedy for insomnia. The Native Americans used it in healing wounds and ulcers, as well as a cough remedy.
