Starwest Botanicals, Catnip, Leaf, 1 lb Powder
Botanical Name: Nepeta cataria
Origin: United States
Common Names: Catmint, catnep, catswort, field balm
While humans may find dried nepeta cataria leaves to be effective when taken as an infusion, to their pet felines, catnip leaf is in fact not a beneficial herb but an exciting treat. Felines have a sense of smell that is far more developed that that of humans - by a magnitude of several million. In fact, it has been suggested that felines perceive scent in the same way that humans perceive color. Just as certain wildcrafted herbs can cause humans to have visual dreams, so too does catnip leaf cause your tabby to experience olfactory dreams - which, if the typical cat response is any indication, are highly pleasurable, but ultimately harmless.
Ground catnip leaf can be used as a tea. If you live with a cat (or more than one), you'll want buy organic bulk herbs like nepeta cataria in sizable quantities to keep your kitties entertained. (In fact, this natural herb, when given to your cat, is more likely to keep you entertained.)
