> does anyone know any thing about catnip i mean anything

Catnip can be used to make a calming and soothing mild tea. It combines well with passion flower and hops. Also makes kitties go bananas!

I have taken this herb as a tea and as a tincture. Using mostly the flower tops with water that has been boiled and then cooled slightly. It's a wonder sedative for smoothing off the rough edges. I have used it with cancer patients and children.
