MUCA’s Organic Valerian Root is defined by its distinct, stinky smell that reminds us of the smell of wet earth (you’ll either love it or hate it).
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a perennial flowering plant that blooms fragrant pale pink or white flowers but its this plant’s underground roots that cats find so attractive.
Valerian Root contains the cat stimulant, Actinidine, which works much like Catnip. Actinidine stimulates cats’ “happy” receptors which decreases stress and anxiety and improves overall feline well-being. Valerian is an ideal herbal remedy for cats with nervousness, depression, anxiety or stress related behaviour.
Valerian Root Effects: The effects of Valerian are much like Catnip and will vary from cat to cat. Results may vary from drooling, purring, licking, eating or rolling in the herbs, frolicking or zoning out in a trance. Valerian tends to be more soothing on felines than Catnip’s excitable effects.
Directions for use: Sprinkle on a plate, in the garden, on your kitty’s favorite toy, blanket or scratching post or stuff into a catnip toy or old (clean) sock.
Shelf Life: MUCA’s Organic Valerian Root is best stored out of direct sunlight and away from moisture to ensure enjoyment in every sprinkle. Our Valerian is at it’s most potent 12 months after opening.
Human Herbalism: Valerian’s sweet scented flowers have been sought after for centuries in the making of perfumes while it’s root is still valued today for it’s sleep inducing properties when brewed into a tea.
We fully believe that aforethought design is just as important to your cat’s happiness as the quality of our herbs.
Our 50ml Valerian Root is bottled in a luxury glass jar with a resealable and biodegradable cork to lock freshness in every sprinkle. Each jar comes in a recyclable, protective box to prevent light-exposure which drains the potency of the herbs.
