Catnip - Nepeta cataria
Catnip is a whitish-gray plant with a minty odor. The flowers are white with crimson dots. The catnip plant grows in North America and Europe. The leaves and flowers are used as medicine. Catnip also has a long history of use for relieving coughs and those suffering from insomnia or nervous exhaustion.
Since catnip (particularly the volatile oil) may act to promote uterine contractions, it should not be used during pregnancy. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
