Aroma: Herbal and floral
Catnip is an invaluable remedy for respiratory infections (used in aromatherapy) — taken as a hot tea it increases perspiration and effectively brings down fevers, and acts as a decongestant. Catnip should be taken frequently at the first signs of colds or flu, and is also helpful in bronchitis and asthma, as well as eruptive infections such as chicken pox measles.
Throughout history, catnip has been used by man to produce a calming, sedate state of mind, without intoxication — to help open chanels for spiritual meditation.
Catnip is a wonderful remedy for babies and children; being calming and relaxing it will relieve restlessness and induce sleep. Its relaxant effect is also felt in the digestive tract where it relieves tension and colic. A strong infusion will relax headaches related to tension.
Note: Although remedial, people with major health ailments like cancer, or epilepsy should avoid use. Non—toxic, non—irritant, possible sensitization in some individuals. Not to be used while pregnant.
