Herbal Tea


Valerian root tea recipe is used to create a wonderful herbal tea that can help with a variety of ailments and conditions.

Valerian Root Tea

It is a very popular herbal tea and can be used in other herbal tea mixes as well. Valerian root is a powerful herb though - and you need to use caution when 'mixing' with any other herb. If you are ever in doubt, consult a herbalist or even your local pharmacist and they can advise of adverse herbal concoction recipes that you may be considering. Valerian root is a great insomnia remedy, and has sedative qualities bringing on sleepiness. Not advised to drink during daytime hours or for pregnant women.

We are providing a basic Valerian Root Herbal Tea recipe, which is quite safe.

Valerian Root Tea Recipe

Water quality affects all types of tea! Always try to use best quality water when brewing any type of tea


  • 1 teaspoon valerian root
  • 16 ounces of fresh boiled water
  • Steep the valerian root for 2-3 minutes and remove. Use a tea strainer, fillable tea bag, or tea infuser. (You can also use the Libre tea glass and 1/2 teaspoon of the valarian root for a personal beverage)

    You will have two cups of valerian tea that is terrific right before bed. It will help you dose off into a wonderful sleep. Valerian root is used in many sleepy time tea blends and is often safely blended with chamomile.

    Sweeten with honey if you like, and a touch of lemon. It is a nice, easy to drink, herbal tea.

    Buying Valerian Root

    If you are going to invest some time into making your own herbal teas - best you use a source for your herbs that has a proven track record. We like to use Mountain Rose herbs as they are usually organic and or wildcrafted meaning that you are getting a very high quality herb.

    If you visit their site, you will notice that they have both valerian root powder and the herb. For tea making, you do not want to use the powder, it will leave a residue, make a muddy tea, and leave a coating in your mouth. (Not very pleasant!)

    So choose the valerian root that has been shredded. It is quite inexpensive, and you can make some delicious herbal teas.

    Valerian root has been used for its sedative qualities for 100's of years and is a popular herb amongst herbalists. Besides chamomile, it blends well with lavender, or rose petals (flowers), jasmine, and of course lemon and honey.

    I hope this article helps you to make some fabulous Valerian Root Tea blends. To purchase your herbs, you can access Mountain Rose form our tea herbs section of the site.

    Here is to a great sleep thanks to valerian tea!
