Catnip Garden in a Bag (Set of 2)
Cultivate the ultimate attraction.
A member of the mint family, catnip attracts cats, both domestic and wild. Even lions are sensitive to the oils in the stems, leaves and flowers. It was first cultivated for its effect on cats, but it has long been used as a seasoning and to make calming teas. If fresh, the leaves and stems need bruising to release their oils, or you can dry and crush them.
