My cat often gets sick after eating catnip. I heard there is a catnip essential oil. Is this right? And if so, is there a way I can use catnip essential oil so my cat can enjoy it without getting sick? Thank you. Sarah
There is a catnip oil. This oil is very strong and if used undiluted will cause headaches (I speak from experience). However you can make a spritzer using the essential oil, distilled water, and vodka.
The vodka in this recipe is used as a preservative.
- 120 ml of distilled water
- 1/2 tsp vodka
- 10-15 drops of catnip essential oil
Spray it above you cat and he will still get the fun of catnip without the icky mess for you to clean up!
