CATNIP (Nepeta cataria)

Catnip

DESCRIPTION: Catnip has often been referred to as nature's "Alka-Seltzer." On the Indian reservation, relatives always came to my grandmother for catnip when their babies had colic or they needed some gastro-intestinal relief. The Indians have long used catnip for baby colic, but remember that it is also a sedative.
