Catnip is a great relaxing nervine digestive aid and is often recommended for children. For some, especially little ones, it can be relaxing enough to be considered a sedative.

Catnip makes a mild-tasting tea and can also be prepared as a syrup, tincture, or glycerite. Try giving yourself or your children a calming catnip bath after a stressful day!

Catnip – Nepeta cataria (Aerial parts)

Actions: Analgesic, anticatarrhal, antispasmodic, aperient, bitter, carminative, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, nervine, sedative

Energetics: Warming

Use: Like other aromatic nervine carminatives, Catnip relaxes muscle spasm, especially in the smooth muscles of the intestines. It acts as a diaphoretic, opening the pores of the skin, promoting peripheral circulation, and stimulating sweating, which can be helpful in managing fever.

Catnip is also an anticatarrhal, meaning it helps dissolve and stave off the formation of mucus, soothe inflammation of mucous membranes, and be helpful in sinus or respiratory infections. With all of these effects, it can make a great choice for a child who is restless and irritable with a stomach bug, cold, or the flu.

Safety: Catnip should be avoided in pregnancy.

Dose: Infusion: 1-3g dried aerial parts/day divided into 1-3 doses; Tincture: 4-5mL for 3-4x/day
