Catnip Oil Fun Facts

Catnip Essential Oil is not only attractive to domestic cats but also has a similar effect on big cats, such as lions and tigers. These large felines can exhibit playful and excited behaviors when exposed to the aroma of Catnip.

This oil has been found to be a natural insect repellent against mosquitoes.

Catnip is known by various monikers, such as catnep, catmint, nip, and field balm.

What is Catnip Oil?

Catnip, also known as the Nepeta cataria plant, is a tropical herbaceous plant belonging to the mint family, and is native to Asia and Southeast Europe. Its aromatic foliage and unique flowers make it a popular addition to herb gardens.

Catnip was first grown and cultivated for its ability to attract and stimulate cats. The plant contains nepetalactone, a compound that triggers a euphoric response in many felines. This characteristic made Catnip a favorite among cat owners, who often used it in toys or as a form of environmental enrichment for their pets.

Throughout history, Catnip has also been valued for its various medicinal properties and benefits. Traditionally, Catnip has been used in teas, juices, and other infusions for its stimulant effects on the nervous system, and to treat headaches. 

The use of Catnip has evolved to encompass other applications. Catnip Essential Oil, derived from the leaves and flower tops of the plant, has a high content of nepetalactone (though it should not be used around cats). This compound possesses antibacterial and antioxidant properties that may be beneficial for addressing minor skin issues. It may help soothe irritation, redness, and inflammation, making it a valuable ingredient in natural skincare formulations.
