Valerian root is a powerful root herb that is used primarily as a sleep aid and for anxiety. The aroma is distinctive and the taste is quite bitter, but not too bad, as most people who use it feel the benefits outweigh the bitter taste. Many people also mix valerian root with other herbs to mask the flavor such as mint, chamomile or hibiscus.
