Medicinal Uses
Catnip is especially lovely as a relaxant herb for nervous tension combined with an upset stomach. The antispasmodic and carminative actions soothe and relieve digestive spasms and gas. The herb is great for colds and flus and fevers.

Catnip is fitting as a herb for children and babies that are fussy and colicky. A glycerite tincture is easily taken by children due to the sweet taste. Combines well with chamomile, mint, and lemon balm for this purpose.

The leaves have mild anesthetic properties and can be chewed to soothe tooth and gum aches. Sometimes added to smoking blends to produce euphoric effects.

A favourite of our feline friends fresh or dried.
