the health benefits of catnip for cats is that it relieves stress and nervousness. It can also be brewed as a tea to bathe and relieve itchy skin.
That's interesting. Bathe for itchy skin. Thanks :3
I've also heard about catnip tea for humans but I don't know what for.

I haven't tried valerian on cats but I've tried it on myself and at home with my parents sometimes they have valerian tea. Helps to sleep and relax I've heard. Didn't know it was used on cats as well.
I wonder if the smell is alluring for them.
