Catnip or Catmint uses

Catnip, although it has a pungent, unusual odor and taste, its medicinal  value should not be underestimated, it highly effective for a variety of ailments. As a tea it is useful for anxiety,insomnia, and colic , place or fill dried herb into a tea ball place in pan with 1 to 2 cups distilled water (always) bring to a boil , then shut off and seep for 10 minutes then drink for babies pour into a bottle or sippy cup w/1/4 to 1/2 tsp.molasses.If a fever is high or present in a child or adult a catnip enema will bring it down post haste .Since catnip is known to kill bacteria, viruses, and parasites it should be useful as a tincture which is a form I prefer , I really love tinctures they are so easy to prepare you can take any clean jelly or jam jar fill 3/4 with any dried herb or combination of herbs cover with 80 proof or better alcohol any kind, I prefer brandy, but have used vodka,  and or everclear .Then you will place in cupboard out of light,turn upside down 1x a day for 7 to 10 days and viola strain and place in clean tincture bottles which can be purchased at your local health food store. Hope this is helpful to my readers and as always Namaste/Muse corner /When a woman closes her heart to a man, Wild stallions cannot restore it ,It builds a wall of steel so high, no seeker will ever scale it . When a woman gives her heart to a man,No force on earth can steal it ,When fed with truth and tenderness no other can deceive it./             LMI
