Make a Valerian Root Tincture

Here's an excellent video on how to make herbal tinctures. This is an herbal tincture recipe using Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis). Valerian tincture is a calming herb and a good herbal insomnia remedy. Valerian root tincture is also a good home herbal remedy for anxiety. Making a tincture is a great way of preserving these medicinal constituents since tinctures will last on your shelf for several years. Tinctures are also a very convenient way of getting herbs into our systems. This recipe uses dried bulk oranic herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Valerian root has also been said to ease muscle cramping, rheumatic pain, migraines, uterine cramps, intestinal colic, and stress-related heart problems and hypertension.

Valerian is contraindicated in pregnant and breast feeding women, but otherwise is a safe herb to use intermittently when needed for stress or sleep related problems.

Excellent Video!

Thanks for your beautifully-executed informative and easy-to-follow video about making Valerian Tincture. I just harvested some roots from my garden and wanted to know how to prepare it when fresh- which you also addressed. You managed to cover everything in a very clear and relaxed way-- must be the result of sampling the tincture:)
