    Parts used and where grown:

    The catnip plant grows in North America and Europe. The leaves and flowers are used as medicine. Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies): Catnip is famous for inducing a delirious, stimulated state in felines. Throughout history, this herb has been used in humans to produce a sedative effect. Catnip tea was a regular beverage in England before the introduction of tea from China. Several other conditions (including cancer, toothache, corns, and hives) have been treated with catnip by traditional herbalists.

    Active constituents: The essential oil in catnip contains a monoterpene similar to the valepotriates found in valerian, an even more widely renowned sedative. Animal studies (except those involving cats) have found it to increase sleep. The monoterpenes also help with coughs.

    Are there any side effects or interactions? Using reasonable amounts, no side effects with catnip have been noted.

    At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with catnip.
