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.
