The listing, 25 plus Catnip seed (Perennial) has ended.

"...Catnip (botanical name Nepeta Cataria) is a perennial herb that belongs to the mint family and grows up to a height of anything between three feet and five feet. The stem of this plant is straight, quadrangular and branching covered by hairs. The leaves have an oblong or heart shape with pointed ends and scalloped borders. They have whitish or gray hairs on their underside. The flowers of catnip are white having purple specks and bloom atop spikes during the period between June and September.

Nepelactone, whose chemical structure has a close resemblance to that of valepotriates (the tranquilizing elements present in valerian root), forms the main constituent of this herb. This is the main reason why drinking one cup of hot herbal tea prepared with catnip before retiring to bed at night ensures a sound sleep. During experiments, it was found that mice that were given a catnip had less activity in general and slept for more time. When a catnip extract mixed with hot water was given to young chickens (about 9 days to 27 days old) in a hatchery it was found that on average they slept for a considerably more time during their daily as well as weekly carefree sleeping period.

Catnip is a very useful herbal remedy for treating all types of infections of the respiratory tract. In addition, when consumed in the form of a hot tea, catnip makes one perspire profusely and, in effect, alleviates fevers, while working in the form of a decongestant. When you have a cold or flu, you should take catnip as soon as you notice the symptoms and take it quite often. In addition, catnip is effective in treating asthma and bronchitis plus eruptive infections like measles and chicken pox. This herb is an excellent medication especially for infants and children. As it possesses soothing and relaxing attributes, taking catnip provides relief from restiveness and brings about sound sleep...."
