Chizonepeta, or better known as Jing Jie in Chinese name, is a medicinal herb that is frequently used for the treatment of common cold and nettle rash clinically. In addition, its green buds are also one of highly regarded pediatric sedatives. This herb is easily recognizable but keeps in mind not to mix it up with the true catnips of the genus Nepeta, which is an herb that has excitatory and hallucinogenic actions on two-thirds of the cats but does no harm to them and human beings.

The above-ground parts, spike, and stems contain volatile oil 1.12%, 1.69%, and 0.60% respectively, schizoneptoside, schizonol, flavonoids, etc. And main components of volatile oil are pulegone, menthone, isomenthone, isopulegone, and so on.


As you can see now, it is good at treating colds and flu, in particular the common cold due to wind-cold. This pattern usually occurs in autumn and winter and is caused by wind and cold pathogens. Clinical manifestations include sensation of chill, fever, stuffy nose, headache, runny nose; body aches, coughing up phlegm, and so on. Compared to western medicine, schizonepeta tea has fewer side effects since it brings the cold symptoms to an end in a natural way. And the efficacy will be much better if combined with fresh ginger since ginger can dispel cold and induce perspiration by entering lung and spleen meridians. Of course, from the point of view of western medicine, the explanation for how it works is quite different.


In addition, chizonepeta can be the used for essential oil.
