Some ideas in no particular order:

I have yet to try passion flower or valerian root extract powders or tinctures. I would put them in capsules and try at night for sleep.

I might be receiving a sample of some blue lotus extract capsules. Maybe in a week or two. This is supposed to be very relaxing and maybe mildly euphoric. I will report on these if I get them.

I just read something about lotus seeds being an antidepressant. I haven't researched in depth, but there have been studies:

There are also some formulas indicated for calming the spirit. One is called Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan (heavenly emperor boost the heart). It has schisandra, among other things. Other ones exist for sleep, with herbs that tend to boost Yin, or the calm, relaxed polarity of the bipolar scale.

Albizzia bark and flowers are supposed to be really good for calming and relieving depression, especially the "broken heart" type feeling. The Chinese name makes specific reference to its ability to encourage happiness.

Can you go into detail about what you use Valium for, and what other physical/emotional/mental symptoms you are struggling with?
