    Catmint is a mild relaxing herb. Very suitable when you feel like staying home to relax, listen to some music and let all your stress float away.
    It has a nice flavor. Cats seem to like it too, when they eat it they apparently become very excited.
    Effects
    It produces a comfortable, relaxed high-feeling and stimulates the imagination.
    Usage
    For tea, take 25 grams and boil it together shortly with 1 liter of water. Let it steep for 15 minutes and then add honey or whatever you like to improve the taste. Smoking Catmint is not recommended.
