Although most people don’t realize that this treat, so commonly reserved for its sedative, calming effects on cats, also has extensive benefits for human beings like driving aways infections. Its native range is quite diverse, stretching across Europe and parts of Asia, including China. It is potent due to a certain terpenoid, called nepetalactone, but various other chemical constituents and nutrients also affect human health.
Catnip can be applied topically via the leaves or the essential oil, while catnip tea brewed from the leaves is also popular. As per the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the extracts and essential oils made from catnip are also quite popular for their uses. It is generally used in teas, juices, tinctures, extracts, salves, and even as an herb to be smoked, in addition to its culinary applications.
