I grew up in a family of 12 children and my mother didn't drive so she relied on home remedies. I still use fresh catnip leaves at age 64 to make a poultice for healing wounds. I'm currently using catnip poultice on wound that's the size of a half dollar where melanoma cancer was removed from my foot. You use fresh leaves, add milk, and flour and heat it either on stove or in microwave. The flour and milk form a paste to hold the leaves together. Be sure and check the temperature and apply poultice that is not too hot to avoid possible burn on the skin. If you'd like to tell me about your experience using it as a poultice, feel free to send me an email to
