To treat common illnesses, medicinal plants are useful to have on hand. To relieve headaches, tummy discomfort, and even irritation from bug bites, you should aim for some medicinal plants.
For cats, Catnip (nepeta cataria) is an excellent herb. Since its scent acts as a stimulant, most cats are drawn to the plant and roll around near it. If eaten, these medicinal plants also serve as a sedative for cats. On the other hand, it is commonly used as a stress reliever for humans, sleep aid, and a cure to skin problems. The presence of nepetalactone, thymol, and other compounds that make this plant perfect for you and your furry friend, offers the bulk of its health benefits.
