Black Cat Brand Catnip | Organic Catnip for Love, Magick & Silly Kitties
***** Five Paws! Approved!
I don't know exactly when it happened, but hundreds of years ago some European farmer found his cats rolling around in a patch of minty weeds, acting silly. That farmer decided to name that minty weed catnip and the rest is history.
Scientists have since named it Nepeta Cataria, and have even figured out what it is about this member of the mint family that brings out the kitten in even the most dignified of felines. The answer is Nepetalacone, a chemical that is concentrated in special glands on the surface of the catnip leaves. When the delicate membranes around the glands are broken, a scent is released that triggers a pleasure center in the cat's brain. Cats then roll around, rub, jump, salivate, and play for 10 or 15 minutes, then calm down and often end up napping.
It's magickal uses promote beauty, happiness, attraction and love. Give it to your cat to create a psychic bond. Catnip is also called the Woman's Love Herb because it is said to make women enticing and charming to make men ready and increase their nature. Carrying Catnip in a mojo bag or charm will make the man you want be attracted to you. Sprinkle around the four corners of the bed or burn as incense to attract a new lover.
