Use: Adam Michael has this to say about Catnip Essential Oil “Catnip, also known as dog mint is a medium sized perennial with greyish leaves that produces pretty white/pale pink flowers throughout the summer and belongs to the mint family. This Nepeta species is the one cultivated for its medicinal and culinary properties. I did grow this in my garden a few summers ago, however the aroma was of great interest to the cats who enjoy a leisurely stroll in my garden each day. These cats destroyed my other plants in the rockery so I had to remove the catnip and have never grown it since. On further investigation I came to realise the plant contains meta-tabilacetone at approximately 7%, this is what the cats where attracted too. At the same time a good friend of mine in Portugal grows this in containers and keeps it around the outside table and chairs. The vast majority of mosquitoes can’t tolerate the odour much to the delight of his wife and young children. Now the constituent that repels the insects is called nepetalactone and I understand oils are produced with this present or removed. This material does contain the nepetalactone. The smell of catnip is herbaceous, cool mint, with a touch of citrus.
