Not Just for Cats!

This is the first of my blog posts from my 12 year old son. He will be my contributor for most Wednesday posts. He has studied Herbs quite extensively over the last 2 years, and actually has his own etsy shop devoted to his herbal products. (It's on vacation right now until mom gets her act together.) Here's Seths first Well Within Wednesday post: (ps I took it word for word, so remember...a 12 year old wrote it!)

Hi! I'm Seth. I love herbs, but my favorite is catnip for more than one reason.
Reason #1 is that you can bug cats with it. But, the real reason is it's GR8 with kids and adults both! Light teas may sooth colic, restlessness, and nervousness.
In strong tea it can cure fevers and upset tummies and help prevent diarrhea and nausea.
When put into a bath it can help heal irritated skin.
Plant Description: It is 2-3 feet high. Long stem. Heart shaped, toothed leaves with downy fur. Anything above ground can be used.
That's it for now, bye. Seth.
Let me know what you think of my sons post. He would love comments!
