I saw an article about valerian oil and its affect on insomnia and thought I would give it a try. I wanted to ensure I got the good oil so went back to where I knew only sold the good stuff. Ok so it is not my favourite scent (much prefer my “Rudolph killed my brother scrub) but so far I would say it is working. Elena bath & body is a store I trust to only have the best you need.
Valerian smells like valerian, its not pleasant. but it works and it helps you sleep really well
