Our certified organic catnip comes in an all natural muslin bag and is the ultimate herb for your feline friend. For centuries cats have been going crazy over this plant, making them happy and energetic. For people however, it has a more sedating effect. Catnip is a perennial herb of the mint family and can be used to brew a delicious herb tea, served alone or with a slice or lemon. To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of catnip. Cover and steep for 5-10 minutes, strain and serve immediately. Catnip has been used in European folk medicine for generations as a calming agent for body and mind. It is gentle enough for use with children and infants, especially those who have digestive issues.
