Catmint, Nepeta Cataria
Catmint, also known as Nepeta cataria, is an herb that has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. The plant is native to Europe and Asia and has been naturalized in North America and Canada. Despite its reputation for inducing feline frenzy, catmint is prized for its relaxing properties and various health benefits for humans.
Effects of Catmint
Catmint is often used for its relaxing effects, stimulating the imagination, and in higher doses, can be mildly hallucinogenic. Some people even compare the effects of catmint to those of cannabis.
Use of Catmint
To make catmint tea, use 25 grams of shredded catnip per liter of water. Let the mixture steep for 15 minutes, then sift the residue out. While catnip by itself already has a pleasant taste, you can add sugar or honey to sweeten it if desired. It is important to note that catnip should be avoided during pregnancy, as it can induce uterine contractions.
Warning! Avoid catnip when pregnant, as it can induce uterine contractions.
The Nepeta Cataria plant is more commonly known as catmint, catnip, or catswort, named for its ability to excite both domestic and wild cats. However, the plant has the opposite and relaxing effect on humans. In fact, rats tend to avoid it entirely.
While catnip is considered a very English plant, it is actually native to Europe and Asia. After being brought to North America by colonists, it became naturalized in the region.
