Organic Catmint Aerials (Catnip)
Catnip is commonly used to provide stimulation and entertainment for cats. The herb can be sprinkled on toys, scratching posts or rubbed on objects to attract cats and encourage playfulness.
Some cats may find catnip calming and use it as a stress reliever. The scent of catnip can help relax cats and alleviate anxiety in certain individuals.
Catnip can be used as a positive reinforcement tool during training. By associating desired behaviours with catnip rewards you can encourage cats to learn and perform specific actions.
Nepeta cataria can be used to enrich a cat's environment by providing mental and sensory stimulation. This can help prevent boredom and encourage cats to engage in natural behaviours.
In addition to its recreational use for cats, catnip has also been used for medicinal purposes in humans. It has been employed as a mild sedative, digestive aid and for relieving symptoms of colds and respiratory issues.
