Turnip leaves or kitty nip
I’m Keiko. I’m a soul level animal communicator®.
This year of 2023 is my personal year number 6 in numerology, which means I have to deal with house and family matters.
Anyways, this year I had to replace some appliances.
I just replaced a fridge the other day. Gosh! It was such a debacle.
The day the fridge came home, I had to move everything from the little freezer of the refrigerator to the big freezer. Then I put them back into a new one later.
I was cooking supper today.
I grabbed a bag of turnip leaves that I grew last year.
(It is supposed to be a superfood.)
I've been eating them, so it was only little bit left.
So, I opened the bag and put them all in.
Then for some reason, Cocoa came and looked like he wanted the food I was cooking.
I told him this is Mommy and Daddy's food it is too salty and too spicy for you.
I didn't think anything of it.
We ate the food, and it was good.
Later that night, my husband told me Cocoa was digging in the recycle bin. There was a bag that written kitty nip in that bin.
It boggled my mind. I never put that bag in the bin.
I didn't give kitty nip to them.
Then the light bulb moment crossed my mind.
I thought that bag was turnip leaves, but it was actually kitty nip that I collected and dried from plants last year.
That bag was in the freezer of the old fridge.
No wonder Cocoa came around.
Later that day, I was curious about what happens if a human ate the kitty nip.
So, I looked it up.
"Catnip is an aromatic plant that contains antioxidants and volatile compounds like nepetalactone, thymol, and pinene that may have medicinal benefits.
Improved Sleep. One of the most traditional uses for catnip is as a sleep aid.
Stress Relief. The calming effects of catnip give it many benefits for relieving chronic stress and anxiety.
Cold and Flu Remedy.
Aids Skin Irritation.
I had no idea.
Although I was glad to fond out about this, I felt really bad for Cocoa. You know I apologized to him.
Do you know the benefits of catnip?
Love and Peace
