Catnip, also known as "Cat Mint," is a member of the Mint family, like Peppermint or Spearmint. It is native to Southern and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. Since the ancient Egyptians worshipped cats, it is thought that they were some of the first to give this herb to their cats!
Catnip has also been used in cooking for thousands of years, from Catnip Tea to seasoning your favorite kitchen dishes. Today we use Catnip much like the ancient Egyptians, by spoiling our kitties and watching them "enjoy the buzz"!
