Pour 4 cups of hot (but not boiling since boiling water temps may destroy some of the helpful aspects of the herbs) water over the herb mixture and allow them to steep for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture. Sweeten lightly with honey, if desired.
Tid Bits You'll Want to Know:
Uses: Catnip has many uses internally and externally. We use it often in tea and tincture blends. It's mostly used for internal applications: teas, tinctures, capsules, food recipes, etc. Our two favorite uses are in teas and meals. It has a rather mild flavor so you hardly know it's there. Like many other bulk herbs, we add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, soups, stews, etc.) in small amounts for added nutrition and fiber without affecting the flavor. Catnip can be used to benefit men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing) and children. It can be used as often as you would like.
Storage: The nutrients in Catnip are very sensitive to air and light exposure. It should be kept in an airtight container and stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great but not necessary.
