About Valerian: Each spring, we hand-dig two-year-old valerian roots from Avena's biodynamic gardens and immediately tincture them fresh in organic alcohol. In July, the delicate, lacy valerian flowers grace our garden and nearby fields. The valerian planted here reaches 6-7 feet when flowering! The lacy white flowers on a full moon night are quite magical to behold. Valerian supports deep sleep for people whose natural sleeping rhythms have been disrupted by stress, travel, or muscle tightness. Valerian also eases menstrual tension and digestive stress.
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
