Sweeter and more floral than catnip, catmint delivers many of the same benefits to your hair in the form of a light herbal conditioning rinse that won't weigh hair down.

Nepeta grandiflora (Giant Catmint or Caucasus Catmint) is lusher than true catnip and has dark green leaves and dark blue, almost purple flowers. While cats like it, it doesn't caused the same crazed effect that true catnip does, and its leaves are smaller and softer to the touch.

Why whole leaf cat mint? When making herbal teas and infusions, whole leaf is always best. Normally cat mint comes sold for pets, and to get the most bulk the leaves, flowers, and stems are all shredded and sold together.

Stems contain high amounts of tannins, which can make hair crunchy and dry. Using whole leaves ensures a minimal release of tannins, and a maximum release of conditioning oils and herbal conditioners.

This listing is for one bag (about 5 oz) of catmint, enough for many treatments!

To make a cat mint rinse for your hair, place 4 tablespoons of your desired herb in a cup or bowl and add 2 cups of boiling water. Cover and allow to cool. To make a slightly stronger rinse, take 1/4 oz of herbs and simmer in a quart (4 cups) of water.

For best results use distilled water.

Regardless of the method of infusion, allow the mixture to cool. Strain out the herbs. You will need 1 large bowl and a cup to apply. Standing in the shower, place the large bowl on the floor and kneel over it. Pour the rinse through your hair, catching the rinse in the bowl. Transfer the rinse to the cup, and then pour back through your hair into the bowl. Repeat at least 15 times. You may delay rinsing until later to allow your hair to drink in the benefits.

Our cat mint is 100% organic, hand-harvested and dried to maximize the potency of the herbs
