About Big Moo's Catnip
Why is Mine Better?
Mainly because my catnip is all natural, organic, and I grow it myself! I do NOT source my catnip from other farms, states, or countries. I don't use any chemicals, growth stimulants, or additives, like Silvervine, to boost the potency. Like I said, I don't use anything but 100% catnip plant (Nepeta Cateria). Mine is grown in natural soil, under the sun, and gets watered daily. My entire process is done by hand, and that's what makes it so much better!

What is Catnip?
Catnip (Nepeta Cateria) is a herb, in the mint family. It contains a super special essential oil, Nepetalactone, that drives me and my furriends crazy! Catnip has been used for hundreds of years, formerly, as a medicine to help relax. Once someone found out that cats LOVE the scent of the oil, it's main purpose is now for the pleasure of us felines. There are still other uses for it, like tea, and calming oil diffusers, but the kind I like the best is the leaves!
This is why we only lightly grind the leaves, so you get more, and it retains as much Nepetalactone as possible! Just crush a little pinch between your fingers to release the magic scent, give it to your cat, and let the fun begin!
