Cat Nip is a part of the mint family. Its fancy name is Nepeta Cataria and is believed to have come from Italy. My cats go crazy over it! The ancient Egyptians loved their cats and may have been the first humans to give their cats catnip.
But catnip is not just for cats. Did you know that you can drink catnip to relieve stress and anxiety? It will even help you with your digestion. It is also a mosquito repellant.
