After reading this thread I took out my rarely used book /Encyclopaedia:
Prescription for Nutritional Healing and quote the following about Valerian, the herb used on the 9 of swords:

Actions and Uses:" Acts as a sedative, improves circulation, and reduces mucus from colds. Good for anxiety, fatigue, high blood pressure, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrom, menstrual and muscle cramps, nerovousness, pain, spasms, stress and ulcers"

I guess I will need this book more often in order to make this deck more 'accessible' - not that I don't find it beautiful and relaxing, it is just that I was a bit intimidated by the names of some unfamiliar herbs.

If anyone else needs a hand with any of the herbs mentioned on the cards I will be glad to help.

Back to my deck/book fun
