Catnip Garden

What happens when you grow catnip in your backyard

Catnip Garden thanks to Lena Wrettles

Kitty aphrodisiac en masse

Catnip (nepeta cataria) is a strong-scented mint that contains a volatile oil that’s easily released into the air. Biting or rolling on the plant crushes the leaves, and releases the oil so kitty can get a good sniff. It doesn’t take much. Cats can detect catnip oil in the air at saturations as low as one part per billion.

Rather than a simple smell, the chemical in catnip resembles sedative components also found in the valerian plant, which may be used in natural therapies to calm pets and people. Catnip also may be similar to one of the substances found in tomcat urine - gross to you, but a lovely smell to the cat! A pheromone in urine often triggers the same sort of behavioral reaction in cats as exposure to catnip.
