Valerian white ink print
In Witchcraft Valerian is associated with protection, purification, healing, protection, deep dreaming, and communing with animal spirits, most specifically cats. This has been particularly valuable to me since I have loved many cats over the years and often implement Valerian root to stay in touch with them. Valerian can be used in Spells to end negative self-talk, quell arguments, to bring about Love or to promote harmony. It is used in Samhain and Yule rituals and I have found it particularly useful in connecting with Animal Spirits when The Veil is thin.
