The very same plant with it's 'dirty gym socks' roots has the most spectacularly smelling flowers!
Lots of people try Valerian root because "it's for sleep problems." People, listen to me:
Plants Were Not Invented For Our Illnesses!
Ya gotta understand who Valerian is, not think of her like a drug.
Valerian helps relax our muscles by warming them up, like an internal hot water bottle. This is NOT good if you already run hot!
Sure, the relaxing effect can help promote sleep. But the heat can also keep you up all night.
Match the plant to the person, not the disease.
