Valerian is a flowering perennial distributed throughout Europe, the Americas, and northern Asia. Valerian root smells like ripe cheese when it is freshly dug from the ground, a characteristic that is fortunately reduced as the root dries.

A common tea or tincture of valerian root is sometimes made in combination with Hops, Skullcap, or Catnip.

Due to the presence of a chemical called actinidine, cats find the dried or fresh Valerian exciting as much as they doo Catnip.
