Chapter 8. Catnip Oil
Things you’ll need:
1 cup olive oil
4 ounces dried catnip
How to make the oil?
Step 1: First, dry the catnip. To do this, secure several cuttings with twine and hang them upside down.
Step 2: Add the dried catnip to a sterilized jar and pour in the olive oil. Secure the lid.
Step 3: Place the jar in a sunny place and leave for a few weeks. Occasionally, give the jar a gentle stir.
Step 4: Place a few layers of cheesecloth over a glass bowl and pour the oil. Strain and discard the catnip. If you want the oil to be stronger, return the flowers to the oil and wait for a few more weeks.
Step 5: Store the oil in a glass bottle, make a label and keep in a cool and dark place.
