History of Catnip
Native to Europe & Asia, catnip has been used in herbal applications since the 15th century. Prior to the importation of teas from the Orient, it was the most widely consumed beverage in Europe, used also as kitchen aid and stimulating herb. The Colonists brought catnip over to the New World, but it turns out it was already present. Sly and fun like its moniker; catnip offers a bevy of benefits unknown to most. Another bonus? Your more fickle kitties will be inexplicably drawn to you…
