Nepeta cataria has a square stem and terminal flower spikes that are typical of the Lamiaceae family. It has fuzzy, heart-shaped, toothed leaves, and small flowers that are fragrant and pink to white in color. Catnip is well known for attracting cats of all sizes and domesticity. However, the plant has an appeal for humans as well.

This herbaceous perennial is native to parts of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, but has since naturalized worldwide. It was used in traditional medicine in Europe for centuries and was prized for its ability to calm occasional nervousness and promote restful sleep. Catnip was also incorporated into Native American healing systems and American folk medicine. It can be employed as a gentle tea for children’s complaints due to its mild nature.

Our clearance catnip is organically cultivated in the United States. Catnip can be steeped alone, blended into herbal tea formulas, and tinctured.
