Used for beneficial properties at the time of Hippocrates in the 4th and 5th centuries B.C.¸ Valerian (valeriana officinalis) is native to England¸ Europe and the United States. Valerian derives its name from the Latin valere¸ to be strong referring to both the health benefits of the plant as well as its distinct odor. It was also referred to as All-Heal during the Middle Ages in Britain. In centuries past¸ it was taken for its soothing¸ beneficial effect¸ used as a condiment during medieval times and as a perfume during the 16th century.
