Valerian Tincture (Valeriana spp.)
Valerian is one of the best gentle and harmless herbal sleeping remedies. It enhances the natural body process of slipping into sleep and making the stresses of the day recede.
This Valerian Root was wild harvested in the Salmon River Range of the Rocky Mountains. It was tinctured with a 1:1 ratio in grain alcohol (40% by volume) using time tested techniques that insure top quality.
