Want to try the new garden medicine for cuts and scrapes?
According to herbalists catnip has some uses for you as well, that your cat may not approve of as it may deprive it of its own share of this magical plant!
Catnip as most cat lovers know, can drive many cats crazy though some remain totally untouched by its powers.
German researchers have reported that catnip besides intoxicating your cat startlingly, can also be a mild sedative for you. Try a cup of tea when you feel tense or worried.
In the garden if you cut or scrape your fingers, press some crushed catnip leaves into the wound and it will help. It will keep infection away.
