Catnip is one of the traditional cold and flu remedies. It is an excellent diaphoretic, and its ability to induce sleep while producing perspiration without increasing the heat of the system makes it a valuable drink in every case of fever.

As a carminative with antispasmodic properties, the herb also eases any stomach upsets, dyspepsia, flatulence, and colic. Its sedative action on the nerves adds to its generally relaxing properties.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • We use catnip often in tea and tincture combinations pertaining to any digestive, nervous or sleeping issues. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. For instance, it can easily be made into powder, and used as such in capsules.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, catnip should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.

Hello, I love this herb catnip. It does wonderful to kill roaches around the house. I buy it in tea bags, and make sure to spray my walls and floors. This problem of roaches came to my next door neighbor's home. For humans and dogs it is safe not toxic. So happy results! Also make sure is super clean. This herb 100% does wonderful results.

I really like the snooze tincture. Our baby is four months now and she had much problem sleeping during the day until I tried the snooze tincture. She was so restless one evening and my sister-in-law gave me some tincture to try and that night she slept nine hours. How do i make the fennel seeds and catnip tincture?

Thank you! Thank you! I placed my order on Wednesday and it was here Saturday. I had been out of my favorite tea, Rise and Shine, for a little while and really missed it. I just love this tea. I have yet to kick the coffee habit, but after a cup or two of coffee in the morning I make a pot of Rise and Shine right in my coffee pot. I drink it through out the day and make another smaller pot in the evening, using the same tea leaves for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner. I even make an altered version of the tea for my children. I leave out the Ginkgo and Bilberry and add Cinnamon and sweeten with raw honey. They call it cinnamon tea. I call it Rise and Shine for kids. Even my two year old asks for tea in her sippy cup. And whenever they've been exposed to an illness, I just add a spoonful of Echinacea to the pot. In warmer weather I make the pot the same but allow it to cool to make iced tea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea.
