Catnip isn’t just for your puss, it’s properties have been valued for hundreds of years of use. It is mildly sedative and is gentle enough for children to use. I have seen it calm hyperactive children. It can calm an upset stomach and help to control gas. It is related to mint and does have a mild minty flavor. It is sometimes called catmint. The product we feature is a catnip tea. By the way, not all cats respond to catnip. It seems there is a genetic tendency among cats to its aroma. They get a little drunk on it, actually. The plant is easy to grow and reseeds itself easily.
