Catnip Essential Oil Canada 80% Nepatalactone

Catnip is a perennial herb of the mint family. Its erect, square, branching stem is hairy and grows from 3-5 feet high. The bilabiate flowers are white with purple spots and grow in spikes; these are small and hooded. The plant has a pleasant, aromatic odor. And it seems to be a fact that plants transplanted are always destroyed by cats unless protected, but they never meddle with the plants raised from seed, being only attracted to it when it is in a withering state, or when the peculiar scent of the plant is excited by being bruised in gathering or transplanting.
