Used in spells for beauty and happiness, catnip is also used to capture the heart of another and make them yours. Used for attraction spells.

If you want to create a strong bond between yourself and your cat, give the cat some catnip while you drink a cup of catnip tea. If you’re worried about your cat staying away from home too often, soak some leaves in a bowl of milk under the full moon. Leave this bowl on your doorstep for your cat to find when it comes home, and it should entice it to stop straying so much.
Catnip is arguably most recognized for its capacity to entice our feline companions, which is why it’s called “catnip.” Cats, on the other hand, appreciate several of the plants of the genus Nepeta, which includes catmint. Catnip can be utilized in any magical workings involving cats, cat deities, or feline animal guides because of this trait, which only affects around two-thirds of cats and is thought to be hereditary. It can be used to give a spell feline-like agility and stealth, to summon cat deities, or as an offering to cat spirits.
The name Nepeta is thought to have originated in the ancient city of Nepete or Nepeti, where enormous quantities of catnip were grown for teas and herbal cures. Catnip, like other mint-related plants, grows swiftly, allowing it to be employed in spells for abundance or even fertility, as both cats and catnip reproduce quickly.
Apart with attracting cats and attracting abundance, catnip has also been employed in love spells and rituals in the past, however the reason for this is unknown. It could be due to cats’ frenetic behavior after being exposed to catnip, which mimics cat pheromones.
