Herb, Sete Wale, Set Well, Vandal Root
Powers: Love, Sleep, Purification, Protection
Magical Uses: The rather ill-smelling root, powdered, is used in protective sachets,
hung in the home to guard it against lightning, and placed in pillows to aid in falling
asleep. A sprig of the plant pinned to a woman's clothing will cause men to "follow
her like children." Valerian root is also added to love sachets. If a couple is quarreling
introduce some of this herb into the area and all will soon be calm.
The Greeks hung a sprig of valerian under a window to charm away evil.
Valerian root, powdered, is sometimes used as "graveyard dust."
