Catnip is often used in magic associated with friendship and familial love, and is less frequently used for romance. As an herb used for the love of friends, family, and animals Catnip can help with bonding. By holding Catnip warmed in the hand, then shaking hands with the desired person, a friendship can be cemented. After, keep the Catnip in a safe place, and as long as the Catnip is undisturbed the friendship will remain. It is often used for psychic and dream awareness, and is well combined with Valerian for sleep.
