Possible skin sensitization; not suitable for cats.

Catnip, a member of the mint family, is most famous as a treat for cats to play with, but it also has a long history of traditional herbal use. Keep your outdoor space free of annoyances with Catnip. To support a restful night's sleep, Catnip can be diffused to promote a relaxing atmosphere.
To ease occasional muscular head tension, add a small amount of Catnip Essential Oil to a carrier oil and apply to affected area.

Add equal parts Catnip and Citronella to water or witch hazel to make a spray for an all-natural aid against outdoor annoyances.

For topical application, dilute to 1-3%.

4.0 5  Catnip but like for people

TLDR: keep away from cats. FANTASTIC for inflammation. No data on bug repellent \n\nI mix my catnip oil with a little bit of black pepper and a lot of coconut oil when my joints hurt terribly. It does WONDERS for my wrist inflammation, but I have to be extra guarded as I have two cats. I am fully aware that essential oils shouldn\'t be used anywhere near cats as they metabolize them differently, but once she\'s caught a whiff of it... \nThat said, it is fairly easy to keep it away from the cats but worriesome to know that they\'ll try to get at it. \nIf you have a cat, don\'t use this at home. \n\nI haven\'t bothered to try this as a bug repellent for fear of cat mobbing.

3.0 5  Dislike the scent

I tried mixing it with citrus, citronella, etc to make a room bug spray and to make it smell better, but I just can\'t take it! As for the effectivity, I\'m not so sure since I don\'t use it on my skin but I have been seeing mosquitos nearby where I sprayed it.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Very strong smell, but blends really well with citrus

I was looking for EO that is kid safe yet can repel mosquitoes well, and I get catnip.\n\nThe smell alone is quite hard to handle, but it blends very well with geranium and citrus; lemon, lime, citronella and it does the repelling well.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Keeps the mosquitoes away!

My mom and I share her catnip oil. We put it in a spray and it keeps the the mosquitos away. I\'ll never go back to the store bought spray again! The smell is kind of strong but it\'s a pleasant smell.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
