Should I purchase capsules that contain 300mg valerian oil or tablets that contain 125mg dry valerian extract? Does it make a difference?

both will likely be ineffective. In my experience, the only form of Valerian is the FRESH root. Fresh Valerian root tea is the only form of it that has ever done anything for me. Everything else is just a waste of money.

I've never taken it for SA but for sleep two of the 2 gram capsules seemed to help a little. I guess you'd need less for anxiety during the day but 125mg sounds pretty low.

Better try liquid Valerian drops. Ask the pharmacist about the dosage. It is used with water. Sometimes it helps immediately.
