Catnip

Scientific Name: Nepeta cataria

Catnip Information

Catnip is famous for its sedative effects on the nervous system. It gently relieves the congestion affecting the nerves as a result of built-up emotional tensions. Catnip is also a good cure 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 is excellent to give for nervousness and hyperactivity of children as well as a diaphoretic tea to relieve fevers and colds. Catnip is believed to reduce stomach acid and gas, allay muscle spasms, nervousness, fever, and headaches, and promote perspiration, menstrual flow, and sleep, although there has yet to be any scientific evidence to verify these claims. Catnip is also said to promote sweating and alleviate restlessness in children. Studies show that the main aromatic compound, nepetalactone, is a mild sedative, giving credence to the popular use of catnip for treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
