Our organically crafted Catnip Essential Oil, also known as Catmint Essential Oil, is steam distilled from the beautiful, purple-flowering Nepeta cataria plant cultivated in the charming countryside of Canada. Catnip, a member of the Mint family, is most famous as a treat for cats to play with, but it also has a long history of traditional herbal use. The plant, a herbaceous perennial, is native to Asia and Europe and was widely used in self-help medicine for colds, coughs, chest complaints, and nervousness. A naturally occurring chemical within Catnip - terpenoid Nepetalactone is the main chemical constituent of the Catnip Essential Oil that is a modestly effective mosquito and fly deterrent. Though the plant is often enjoyed by cats, it is best to avoid the use of the essential oil around your feline friends due to its potency and potential to overwhelm the animals' sensitive system.  


Catnip Essential Oil is widely used in bug repellent blends, as it can help deter mosquitos, bees, flies, fleas, and ticks. Catnip Oil can help ease unwanted muscle spasms and also help reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial, fungal, or viral activity. Owing to its cooling antioxidant properties, Catnip Essential Oil is recommended to help alleviate the pain of sunburn and to help minimize skin damage caused by free radicals. The essential oil may be enjoyed in simple diffusion or blended into carrier oils for use on human skin.

Emotionally and energetically, Catnip Essential Oil can invite comfort during difficult emotional transitions, and encourage motivation during times of anxiety, stress and depression. Catnip Oil in conjunction with other essential oils imparts a subtle aroma and feel of serenity and repose. Catnip Oil can also be diffused for supporting a restful night's sleep and promoting a relaxing atmosphere.
