We know catnip primarily for the stimulating effect it has on our cats. Catnip, also called catmint, is a member of the mint family and is a strong-smelling herb. It has a mild woodsy and grass-like flavor. Catnip's biggest health benefit is that it is a calming agent for body and mind. It is gentle and very useful for children and infants with digestive or emotional disturbances. Commonly brewed into a medicinal tea to treat conditions like insomnia, anxiety, and headaches.
