With just one cup of Valerian we can fight nervous disorders, stress, agitation, anxiety and sleep problems. This is made possible by a substance contained within it: valeric acid which gives it sedative, relaxing and anxiolytic properties.
To make a valerian herbal tea you will need 200 ml of boiling water inside which you will insert a small valerian root (about 3.5 g). Leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes and drink.
