Catnip is not just for kitties! Catnip is great for easing menstrual discomfort, promotes urinary function, and supports the digestive system. The famously feline herb also promotes calm sleep, relaxes the mind and body, and helps balance and stabilize emotions.
Also known as Catmint, Catnip oil has been found to be more effective and safer than DEET at repelling biting insects. Since the 15th century Catnip has been used in herbal remedies, and it was the most widely consumed beverage in Europe prior to imported Asian teas.
**BONUS: Native Americans, particularly the Mohegan tribes, used it to soothe throat discomfort and promote overall health, as it is excellent for producing toxic-releasing perspiration.
