Description

Nepeta cataria

An aromatic perennial with purple flowers that grows up to 1m tall. It prefers a well drained soil and sunny position. Cat's really love this plant and can trample all over it and even destroy it because they enjoy it so much!

In herbal medicine this is traditionally used for calming and relaxing the nervous system and digestion. It's useful for colic and upset stomach in children and also a traditional cold and flu remedy to encourage sweating.

This makes a strong tasting aromatic tea - quite lemony and minty with a slight bitterness. It can also be made into a tincture or dried for use in the winter.
