Product Description

Grow in containers and bring indoors for winter--your cats will nibble fresh leaves right off the plant. Researchers suspect that catnip targets feline "happy" receptors in the brain. Dry the leaves and insert them into toys so that cats can catch the scent! When the leaves are eaten instead of smelled, catnip tends to have the opposite effect, creating a calm, mellow cat. It has the same effect on humans, and is often grown in medicinal gardens for that reason, great for calming headaches or promoting sleep. Many people make a tea out of it, pouring boiling water over either a dried teaspoon or a handful of fresh leaves and letting it steep. 75 days to maturity.
