Valerian Root Oil
An oil of valerian root (Valeriana officinalis L.) of Chinese origin was the subject of analysis by Zhang et al. (1993).
The main constituent of valerian root oil was reported by Deng et al. (1995) to be bornyl acetate. As many of the constituents listed in that analysis appeared to be incorrect the compositional study is not included in this review.
