Catnip is used to invoke predictive dreams. Ancient Egyptians made offerings of catnip to Bast, a goddess who took on a feline form. Catnip is also used in Magick as an aid in overcoming ordeals and healing. When faced with a particularly difficult challenge, drinking an infusion of catnip or wearing a sprig either fresh or dried in a charm will make obstacles easier to overcome.
