• Traditionally used to help support fevers, digestive disorders, diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal and menstrual cramping and more.
Catnip is also known by the names Catmint, Catnep, and Field Balm. The genus name, Nepeta, is from Nepeti, a Roman town where this herb was first cultivated. Catnip, a member of the mint family, grows on banks and waste places in northern temperate regions around the world. It is so named because of the peculiar behavior of cats when they get a whiff of this feline favorite. It doesn't cause such behavior in humans but, like many botanicals, it has many excellent nutritional properties. Early settlers believed Catnip would make kind people mean, and so the dried roots were fed to hangmen and executioners.

The part of this plant used for health benefits is the leaf. The primary chemical constituents of Catnip include essential oils (carvacrol, citronellal, geraniol, nepetol, nepetelactone, pulegone, thymol), iridoids, and tannins. It also contains iron, selenium, potassium, manganese, chromium, and moderate amounts of other minerals and vitamins. Catnip has soothing and relaxing effects on the digestive system, supporting diarrhea, flatulence, indigestion, upset stomach and headaches.

Catnip contains antispasmodic properties that are ideal for helping support abdominal and menstrual cramping, and chronic coughing. Excellent in reducing fevers, Catnip can also be used to support alleviating sleeplessness and insomnia. Catnip's astringent properties are also beneficial for helping support colds and bronchial infections.

This herb also has many topical applications - as a bath herb for stress, colic and teething; as a compress or poultice for pain, sprains, bruises and insect bites; as a poultice for toothache; and as a hair rinse for scalp irritations. Other uses include Catnip as a liniment for joint pain; as an eyewash for inflammation, allergies and bloodshot eyes; as an enema to cleanse the colon; and as a salve for hemorrhoids.

This is the common name of the Germander which, when rubbed, gives off a strong disagreeable odor. The taste of this plant is slightly acrid and bitter. It is regarded as an aperative and sudorific. The Marum belonging to the same genus has a penetrating odor and causes sneezing. It also attracts cats who roll about in it.

General Herb Information

Catnip - Catmint (Nepeta Cataria).

Propagation: By seed, easy germination, seeds viable for 4 or 5 years; by root division in spring.

Nature of Plant: 3 feet high; downy, heart-shaped leaves make it suitable for a gray bed; because of its mauve blossoms in dense spikes, the plant gives a softening effect to a bright flower border.

Spacing of Mature Plants: 15 inches.

Cultural Requirements: Sow seed in spring or fall where plant is to grow; dry, sandy soil in full sun makes plants more fragrant; fall sowing gives better germination; cut plants back in July and a second crop may be had in fall, early enough to permit good recovery before frost; plants need little attention except weeding.

Uses

Leaf: (Health) In hot infusions as a sedative and for feverish colds; fresh or dried leaves are good for cats.

Medicinal Usage

Though mainly thought of as a feline euphoric, catnip has a rich tradition of folk use. Catnip tea can be used to help support headaches, stomach aches, and colic and sleeplessness in children. The fresh leaves are chewed for headache. It's an old home supportive for colds, nervous tension, fevers and nightmare. It is diaphoretic and antispasmodic. Herbalists use it to allay diarrhea and chronic coughing. Catnip can also be tried to help support anemia, and menstrual and uterine disorders.

The essential oil contains carvacrol, beta-caryophyllene, nepetol, thymol, and nepetalactone.

General Herb Information

Nepeta cataria is the best known of the more than 250 species in its genus. Native to the dry temperate regions of the Mediterranean, inland Europe, Asia, and Africa, catnip is a hardy perennial growing to four feet in height.

The fuzzy grayish leaves are somewhat oval in shape, acute at the tip, heart-shaped at the base, and toothed, and range from one to three inches in length. The flowers occur in tight terminal spikes. Individual flowers are about three-eighths of an inch long, and are white with light purple spots. Flowering begins by the end of May in the South, lasting through late summer in northern climates. This Eurasian native has become naturalized worldwide. A lemon-scented cultivar, 'Citriodora', is available from some plant sources.

Another commonly encountered species in herb gardens is Nepeta mussinii K. Spreng cx. Henckel. This low-growing sprawling perennial reaches to one foot in height. The gray-green leaves look similar to N. cataria but are only an inch long. The flowers are borne on a loose raceme, are about three-eighths of an inch long, and are rich blue. This species has a peculiar pungent citrus-like fragrance and is the showier of the two species. It is often sold under the name catmint, and cats do enjoy it.

Catnip is easily propagated from seeds or root divisions. Seeds can be sown directly in the garden in spring or fall. Root divisions can also be done at either time. Young seedlings should be spaced eighteen to twenty-four inches apart. Established plants will self-sow. Commercial plantings can be expected to produce between 1,500-2,000 pounds per acre.

"If you sow it cats won't know it, if you set it cats will get it" is a bit of folk wisdom the herb gardener will find true more often than not. Plants sown from seeds seem to be left undisturbed by cats until harvested or transplanted. Bruised leaves release essential oils and attract cats.

Catnip thrives in a variety of habitats. I've seen it growing well in the poorest dry garden soils and in rich, deep-shaded woods. It enjoys full sun but will tolerate partial shade. It will thrive in almost any garden soil and become weedy if given the opportunity. Soil pH can range between 5 and 7.5. The plants will become more fragrant when grown in a sandy soil in full sun than in a heavy loam under shade. Frequent shallow cultivation encourages vigorous growth.

The flowering tops are the most desirable part of the plant. Catnip is by weight 60 to 80 percent stem material. Dried catnip available on the herb market is often of inferior quality, being mainly stem chards.

Catnip
Nepeta cataria L.

Family: Lamiaceae.

Other Names: Catnep; herbe aux chats (French); Katzenminze (German); cataire, nepeta (Italian).

Description: A perennial herb of up to 1 m in height, with opposite pairs of hairy leaves and numerous small, white, pink or blue flowers arranged in rounded clusters. Various cultivars, differing in growth form, flower colour and essential oil composition, have been developed.

Origin: Eastern Mediterranean region, southern Asia and central Asia.

Parts Used: Leaves or flowering tops (Nepetae catariae herba); essential oil.

Therapeutic Category: Mild sedative, mild soporific, digestive.

Uses and Properties: Catnip tea is mainly used as a calming and sleep-inducing herbal supportive, usually taken at bedtime. It also eases indigestion, help promotes sweating and controls the symptoms of diarrhoea. Folk uses include supporting infections, toothache, headache, stress, colic, scalp irritations, joint pain, eye inflammation, allergies and haemorrhoids. Catnip tea was once commonly used in Europe as a relaxing and multi-purpose hot beverage before real tea was introduced. It was one of the main rejuvenating plants grown in the herb gardens of medieval monasteries.

Preparation and Dosage: A tea prepared from about 10 g of dried herb in a cup of boiling water can taken twice a day. It can also be used as liquid extracts and capsules.

Active Ingredients: An essential oil, rich nepetalactone (the main compound); nepetalic acid, epinepetalactone, caryophyllene, citral, citronellol, linonen and camphor are present. Nepetalactone and related compounds are iridoids.

Health Effects: The calming effect of catnip is ascribed to nepetalactone and related compounds. Nepetalactone and nepetalic acid were shown to significantly increase sleeping time in mice. Catnip oil is known to cause CNS slow-down in humans when taken in large amounts.

Notes: The common name is derived from the effect it has on cats. Nepetalactone is thought to have aphrodisiac and pheromone activity associated with feline courtship behaviour and catnip is therefore used by manufacturers of cat toys with the aim of causing playful behaviour. It is also an effective insect and rodent repellent.

Status: Traditional health. The spicy, bitter leaves of catnip support the lungs, liver, and nerves in the body. Diaphoretic, sedative, nervine, and carminative actions make it useful for insomnia, fevers and colds, and diarrhea. The biochemical constituents of catmint include an essential oil comprised of cavracol, citronellol, nerol, geraniol, pulegone, thymol and nepetalic acid along with tannins.

Catnip is famous for its sedative effects on the nervous system. It gently supports the "congestion" affecting the nerves as a result of built-up emotional tensions.

Catnip is a good supporter for diarrhea and is frequently used in enemas to relax and gently restore the tone of the bowels. Because of its mild, gentle nature, catnip, like lemon balm, is excellent to give for nervousness and hyperactivity of children and a diaphoretic tea to help support fevers and colds. For such complaints, it combines well in a tea along with equal parts camomile, spearmint and lemon balm.

It is best taken as a tea; steep one ounce of the dried leaves, covered, in a pint of boiling water until cool enough to drink. Take before retiring in the evening, alone or with passion flower and/or lemon balm, for insomnia.

Catmint (Catnip), the herb so attractive to domestic cats, has few culinary uses. With its gently curved spikes of heart-shaped, gray-green leaves and clusters of white or pale blue flowers, it is, however, an attractive addition to a border.

History

The plant, an herbaceous perennial, is native to Asia and Europe, and was widely used in self-help supplements. In his Herball, Gerard recommends it for colds, coughs, chest complaints, and nervousness.

Characteristics

The plant grows to a height of up to 3 feet. with a spread of 15 inches. It has a straggly habit, and is liable to be squashed flat by cats rolling on it. Indeed, to preserve plants from this fate, it may be necessary to protect them with wire netting.

Growing Tips

Catmint can be grown from seed planted in spring or summer in good fertile soil in partial shade, or by root division or cuttings taken in spring.

How to Use

The fresh leaves, which have a very strong aroma, can be used sparingly in salads.

The pungent smell of catmint inhibits its use in cosmetic preparations, however a handful of the leaves in a bath will support an itchy skin while an infusion, used as a hair rinse, soothes scalp and promotes growth. Two tablespoons each of dried rosemary and catmint simmered for 10 minutes in 2 cups of water, steeped for two hours and then strained and added to ½ cup of cider vinegar makes a good conditioning final rinse for dark hair.

Health-wise,catmint tea can act as an effective tonic for the stomach in cases of infantile colic and diarrhoea. External applications are helpful for minor cuts, abrasions, and bruising.

Sometimes called catmint, catnep, catrup, catswort, field balm, and nip, this herb, as we all know, is irresistible to cats. They will search it out, roll over and over in it, and ecstatically spread it everywhere. A member of the mint family, catnip, when brewed in tea, is thought to help support upset stomachs, coughs, colic, spasms, flatulence, and acidity. It can also be tried to help support hysteria, nervousness, and headaches, and as an enema. Originally native to Europe, catnip is now found wild in many parts of the United States.

A small percentage of people react to catnip as a stimulant rather than a relaxant. There has been talk in some quarters that catnip tea should be drunk sparingly. At least one plant expert believes that catnip contains a hallucinogenic substance that affects humans and cats. The Food and Drug Administration, however, does not include catnip on its "hit list."

Plant Facts and Growing Tips

Plant: Perennial, hardy to -30°F (-34°C). Its erect, square, branching stem is hairy, with pointed scalloped leaves that have gray or whitish hairs on the lower side. Flowers are white with purple spots and grow in spikes from June to September. The plant's odor is mintlike, bitter, and pungent.

Height: 2 to 3 feet.

Soil: Moist, rich.

Exposure: Sun or partial shade.

Propagation: Sow seeds 14 inch deep in spring or fall, during the third lunar phase. Plants will self-sow. They can also be reproduced by root cuttings, stem cuttings, and layering.

Care: Thin plants to 12 inches apart. They tend to become scraggly, so cut them back after they flower to keep a neat appearance and to help avoid them from spreading. If there are cats around, you'll want to protect young seedlings until they are large enough to resist damage by enthusiastic felines, who will roll in them and eat them. It's said that cats won't trouble a seeded bed, but will go for transplanted seedlings. Most growers, however, maintain that their cats don't seem to sense the distinction and get to the catnip no matter how it has been planted. Cultivated near eggplant, tomatoes, turnips, and/or radishes, catnip is said to discourage the flea beetles that attack these plants.

Part Used for Tea: Leaves.

Taste: Aromatic, minty.

How to Brew

By Infusion: Use 1 teaspoon dried herb (or 3 teaspoons fresh herb) with 1 cup boiling water. Make sure the mixture is steeped only and not allowed to boil.

Catnip works

Not a child, but needed to de-stress at night. This works better for me than doctor's prescription.
