Catnip Leaf & Flower
Catnip is known in herbal medicine as a "nervine", which helps to relax the nervous system and help relieve symptoms of anxiety/ nervousness. It has sedative properties, making it useful as a sleep aid. It has been shown to help with migraine and tension headaches. It also acts as a carminative and is antispasmodic, which helps to promote digestion, relieve gas, bloating and colic pains. It is traditionally known as a diaphoretic, which helps increase body temperature to ward off colds& flu. Being a member of the mint family, this herb is highly aromatic and has a pleasant minty taste.

Have you tried Catnip Leaf & Flower? Tell us what you think!
Very earthy mint smell, heavily weighing on the earthy side. It is of the mint family so that taste is sort of there, but it’s very grassy with a hint of mint. A tsp of honey may be favourable for some. This is top grade Catnip from shantitea, brew this with water just before boiling and steep for 30 minutes, and drink before bed time. You’ll never complain about sleeping again.
