Catnip is listed as an effective sedative, particularly in children. There is a slight debate whether Catnip is safe for children…. it has been used for thousands of years by many different cultures. Some modern American medicine professionals seem to think it should be avoided while others say it is fine to use. The decision is yours to make after doing some research or speaking to a herbal practitioner.
Pregnant women should NEVER use/drink/eat CATNIP because it has been known to stimulate menstrual flow so should NOT be used by pregnant women….ever !
