Catnip Essential Oil
Catnip Essential Oil Catnip Oil


Well known as a fun treat for our feline friends, Catnip hosts a long list of benefits for humans as well. Catnip Essential Oil is extracted from a plant in the mint family and has a sweet, herbal, and floral aroma. In contrast to its stimulating effect on cats, Catnip Essential Oil acts as a sedative for humans. It works to soothe anxiety and calm the mind while also relaxing the body and helping to induce sleep. Catnip Essential Oil can also be found as an ingredient in insect repellents, helping to ward off pests such as mosquitoes and cockroaches.
