Remedy Description

Extracts or teas prepared from valerian, Valeriana officinalis, have their

main use in herbal medicine as sedatives. However a German herbal book

from the 14th century suggests another possibility:

Nym Baldrian in den Mund und ksse eyne, welche du wilt. Sye gewihnnt dich

lieb. (Take valerian in the mouth and kiss anybody you want. In that way

you will win love.)

Spikenard, Nardostachys jalamansi, is an East Indian member of the

Valerianaceae family, which was used by the Romans to prepare an erotic

ointment called foliatum, probably identical with nard.
