These dried catnip flowers are the most potent form of catnip, period. Nepetalactone is the natural chemical in catnip that make cats goofy and help them relax. The Nepetalactone is contained in the essential oil of the catnip plant. The flower portion of the plant holds the highest concentration of essential oil. There is less nepetalactone in the leaves. Buds are not easy to come by. They must be hand-harvested and delicately trimmed and packaged to remain intact. They must be harvested at the peak of freshness and are a seasonal product. Get them while you can!
How to use our catnip: we recommend that you keep your catnip stored in it's airtight bag to keep it fresh. Our catnip will stay potent for well over a year if kept out of the sun and airtight.
And due to its potency, all your kitty needs to feel that euphoric ecstasy is a tiny pinch. Just rub the catnip between your fingers to release all the oils stored in the catnip.
You can drop the catnip on the ground and they will usually nibble it up and/or roll around in it with pure bliss. Another great way to get your cat some exercise is to add some catnip to a favorite toy!
