You don’t still believe that catnip is just for cats do you? While I can’t explain the feline attraction to this mint-family plant, I can certainly speak to its benefits as a medicine for us! It is a very pleasant tasting and relaxing aromatic herb, which can be added to blends to flavor calming teas, or packed into a pillow to promote sleep. It can help relieve digestive upset and gas, menstrual pain, as well as respiratory infections. Like Yarrow, it helps break a sweat so it is helpful with fevers too.
