Around the 90’s, other brand name catnip sprays made their appearance on the mass market. Unfortunately, they made a bad reputation of the concept of liquid catnip for cat’s playtime, instead of the well-known messy leaf and flower mulch. Their products did not generate the same response in cats as regular catnip, so it was dismissed as a “So-So” product.
Why? Most of the other available catnip sprays on the market today are made with catnip extract, not catnip essential oil.
What is the difference? To get a plant extract, the process involves mashing the plant, then a maceration process in alcohol (or other similar liquids) solution to gain a scent. (This is one of many ways to do it. Cold pressing the plant is another.)
To obtain essential oil, the process is more complicated and a costly one. From The Field use steam distillation to get the catnip essence. This essential oil is very sensitive to temperature variation and direct sunlight. We then mix a small calculated amount of pure catnip essential oil in distilled water in each bottle.
