Catnip General Information
Catnip is a perennial herb and part of the mint family. This plant has a square, branching stem that is hairy and grows from 3 to 5 feet high. The oblong, pointed leaves have scalloped edges and gray or whitish hairs on the lower side. The flowers are white with purple spots, and while Catnip is an intoxicating and irresistible herb for cats, humans find it to be beneficial as well. This herb contains nepetalactone, which is what gives Catnip its odor. Recent laboratory experiments at Iowa State University have shown this compound to be 10 times more effective as a mosquito repellant than the insect repellent diethyl-meta-toluamide (DEET). It is safe to use, and is also showing promise as a repellant for cockroaches and termites. Catnip also contains vitamins C and E, and is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, which are essential in fighting cataracts and other age-related conditions.

Catnip Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Catnip is most commonly used as a mild tranquilizer that helps relieve stress, promotes restfulness, and stimulates the appetite. It also works well in soothing babies and children and promoting restfulness and sleep. Catnip is also used to induce sweating without bringing on a fever and promotes menstruation. This herb has also been used to treat anxiety, colds, flu, bronchitis, fever, inflammation, and general aches and pains. The tannins in this herb make it a good remedy for diarrhea, even in children, and for inflammatory bowel conditions and infections, and constipation. It helps reduce pains caused by menstruation and can help regulate periods. Catnip oil can help prevent and dispel gas, and is mild enough to be used for colic in babies. A strong infusion will help headaches caused by tension, indigestion and stress-related conditions. A hot infusion makes a good antiseptic for sore throats and coughs, a decongestant for catarrh and sinusitis, and a relaxant for croup and asthma. The leaves or ointment made from the juice of this plant can be applied to hemorrhoids to soothe burning and itching or on eruptive skin infections such as measles and chickenpox. The tannins in the leaves speed tissue repair, help stop bleeding of abrasions and cuts, and aid in the healing of burns and scalds, piles and insect bites and other inflammatory skin conditions. A Catnip tincture makes a good friction rub for rheumatoid and arthritis joints. This catís fancy is also used as a mosquito and insect repellent.
