Catmint or mint (Calamintha nepeta)
There catmint (or mint), is a spontaneous and aromatic plant, widely spread in all Italian regions. It releases an unmistakable scent, which accompanies the walks of enthusiasts along meadows and paths. In ancient times it was used in herbal medicine for its medicinal properties, a use today in decline, but which is worth re-evaluating. It also has several beneficial properties for the body. The plant also boasts an excellent culinary tradition and enters into some typical regional preparations, which is why it is also known with typical local names, such as: nepetella, nepeteja, nebidedda, nitipitedda etc. Finally, it is also of great importance from an environmental point of view, being melliferous, that is, very welcome to bees.
So let's discover all the secrets of catmint.
The botanical characteristics of catmint
Catmint, scientific name Calamintha nepeta, is a perennial aromatic plant of the botanical family of Lamiaceae (or Labiateae). It has a strong minty smell, so in vulgar language it is called common or wild mint. Although belonging to the same family as the best known peppermint, the two species are different from each other. The catmint is formed differs due to a penetrating rhizomatous root, from which numerous stoloniferous stems branch out, partly creeping to the ground. In height the plant can exceed 50 cm and overall forms a beautiful bush. The stems have a quadrangular section, are hairy on the surface and branched at the top. The leaves, the most aromatic part, are opposite, ovate in shape, covered with hair, slightly toothed margin and sub-acute apex.
The flowers of the mint and its importance for bees
Catmint is a melliferous plant. The flowers are small and lilac in color, gathered in a peduncle in the terminal part or at the axil of the leaves at the top. Taken together, they form a compound inflorescence. The importance for bees is due to the particular flowering period, which runs from late summer to autumn. This is a period of scarce flowers, so the nectar and pollen of catmint represent an important source of food for bees. It is difficult to produce nepitella monoflora honey, as the plant is used by beekeepers to leave the bees the opportunity to accumulate reserves for the winter.
Habitat of the common mint
Catmint is a very rustic and adaptable plant. It grows in the uncultivated fields, between the dry stone walls of the countryside, in the meadows, at the edges of the roads, in difficult terrain with drought conditions.
We find it from the low hill to the mountain.
The best time to harvest the mint is during the long flowering period, when its aroma is at its maximum, with the more concentrated essential oils. The plant dries up the apical part in winter, but is ready to start again even more luxuriantly in spring. Even by cutting it at the base it is able to grow back, indeed it strengthens itself. For these reasons, catmint is not cultivated, as it is so common and easy to reproduce naturally.
Properties of catmint
The common mint is excellent as a medicinal plant. Both the leaves and the flowers are used, so just pick it in bloom and let it dry in a cool and dry place. It keeps well in paper bags and is then used for herbal teas, infusions and decoctions. It has a wide range of biological assets, including antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as anti-ulcer and insecticidal properties. The most common uses are as a diaphoretic, expectorant, febrifuge and stomachic. Domestic preparations with nepetella are also indicated for gastrointestinal disorders, but also to relieve menstrual pain. However, the use of the plant is not recommended for pregnant women.
Catmint in the kitchen
It is in tasty typical regional recipes that catmint is still widely used today. The regions in which it is most sought after are undoubtedly Lazio and Tuscany, especially in the areas of Tuscia and Maremma. In Sicily it is used for the dressing of olives in brine. In general, it is perfect to accompany dishes based on mushrooms, artichokes and aubergines. Famous all over the world are in fact the artichokes alla Romana, of which catmint is a fundamental ingredient. In the kitchen it is mainly used fresh, but dry is fine too, a bit likeOrigan.
Below, we offer two very simple recipes with catmint, within everyone's reach and perfect for enhancing the taste of dishes and enhancing the aroma of this plant.

Mentuccia, nepetella or nepitella? Let's do some clarity
Many names but few certainties, learn to recognize the mint and the nepitella, similar but different species.
Mint, nepetella and catmint are common names with which mint-like plants used in cooking are identified.
The botanical similarities, related uses and common names proper to each region have created a bit of confusion: let's do a bit of order, let's discover together the differences and similarities between mint, nepitella and nepetella.
Mentuccia, nepetella and nepitella, let's avoid mistakes
Mint , nepetella, nepitella but also Roman mint o poleggio: common names often used as synonyms to define spontaneous plant species more or less similar to mint ( Mentha spp. ). These plants are used in traditional Italian cuisine, partly because they have similar flavors and partly because in the spontaneous state it is not easy to distinguish them.
Before describing them specifically, it is good to clarify: of all the plants mentioned, only Roman mint (Mentha spicata) is a real mint while common mint, catmint and poleggio are terms used indiscriminately to define the Clinopodium nepeta, attributable to a plant genus similar to mint. Finally the nepetella (Nepeta nepetella), a plant with an aesthetic similar to the previous ones but which is nothing more than a type of catnip with limited growth.
Mint, who said it is a mint?
As we have just pointed out, the mint veritable is an aromatic plant belonging to the genus Clinopodium, in particular to the species Clinopodium nepeta (in some texts Calamintha nepeta ). In addition to the term mint, this plant is also indicated with the common names of catmint and poleggio.
It is a small aromatic shrub very common in all Italian uncultivated areas, no more than 70 cm tall, bears pink / purple pedunculated flower groups that develop in the axilla of the apical leaves.
This perennial species is particularly fragrant and in summer, thanks to its flowers, it releases aromas into the air that attract pollinating insects and expert chefs, intent on gathering wild herbs. There common mint it can be grown without difficulty even at home, all you have to do is divide the head of an adult plant or make a cutting by burying a young mint branch. In both cases, the best time to harvest catmint is in late spring, when the plants have yet to bloom: this is the time of year when the leaves contain the greatest amount of aromatic compounds. In the kitchen, the mint leaves they can be used fresh or after drying in a cool, dark and ventilated environment. Its flavor, similar to that of real mint, is suitable for flavoring many dishes based on meat, fish and vegetables. A combination that is as particular as it is tasty is to cook the mushrooms flavoring them with mint and a little lemon juice. And that the mint is not exchanged with what is usually defined Roman mint (it is none other than the mentastro, Mentha Spicata) if you want to emulate the cuisine of the capital: for the artichokes alla giudia, the saltimbocca and the tripe alla romana you must use only and exclusively the mint!
The nepetella, the catnip used in the kitchen
The nepetella, or lesser cat, ( Nepeta nepetella ) is a plant species belonging to the aromatic family (Lamiaceae) which has aesthetic characteristics very similar to those of the mint.
As its common name recalls, nepetella is nothing more than a catnip that is easily confused with mint plants due to its contained posture and its white-violet flowers, gathered in inflorescences and placed at the base of the branches.
In Italy the nepetella it is not easily found in the spontaneous state even though its reference range is Mediterranean Europe itself. Fortunately, the lesser cat girl can be grown easily in the garden, like the mint: also in this case to get the plants divide the head of an adult plant around mid-autumn and go and transplant the individual portions of roots in multiple containers.
Attention, most likely the cat girl cultivation minor it will never give good results if you have felines hanging out in your flower beds. These animals are hopelessly attracted to the aromatic compounds of this plant, which emulate the sexual pheromones of these animals: you will not have time to transplant the nepeta nepetella that your cats will begin to rub, throw, roll on it accompanying the performance with all the purr they have in their body.
As for the collection, the nepetella leaves they should be harvested between spring and summer, at the beginning of flowering: this is the growth phase of the plant in which the greatest amount of aromatic compounds is recovered.
In the kitchen, nepetella has a light mint aroma and a particular aftertaste that someone associates with savory, even if it has a flavor all its own. It is used just as it is done with real mint, although it is absolutely recommended to try it in advance to understand if its flavor will suit even the most traditionalist palates.
Catmint or mint (Calamintha nepeta) - garden
Calaminta - Mentuccia - Nepetella
Aromatic perennial herb of the Labiate family, also called nepetella, nepitella and mint, common in the woods and among the ruins of Europe and western Asia. It has an erect stem, rounded oval leaves, toothed, velvety, and flowers with large bilabiate corolla, white with purple points, collected in clusters. Rich in essential oils, it is used in the preparation of carminative infusions, sometimes also as an aromatic condiment.
There are several species of Satureja spread spontaneously in our regions, but often also cultivated for different purposes. Like aromatic herbs. especially the hortensis (common savory) and the Montana (mountain savory). In hilly and mountainous regions, they grow everywhere there Satureja vulgaris (clinopodium), the grandiflora (greater mint), la acinos and the alpine, which have medicinal properties similar to those of Satureja calamintha (syn. Calamintha officinalis), of which it refers in detail and which is known as calaminta, calamento or mint, since, due to its posture, the shape of the leaves and the aromatic odor, it has remarkable similarities with the common ones. The true mint or nepetella, widely used in cooking, is considered a subspecies of the previous one (var. nepeta). The true calaminta grows spontaneously in hilly and mountainous regions in sunny places, preferably in deep soils.
This perennial herbaceous plant, extremely rustic and vigorous, is sometimes cultivated in gardens or vegetable gardens for ornamental purposes or as aromatic herb, even if very often the true nepetella is preferred to it, as already mentioned. The flowered top is to be cut off at the end of spring or even in summer, at the beginning of flowering. It dries in the shade and in the air it is kept in paper, jute or canvas bags.
A natural disinfectant : macerate 20 g of calaminta in 400 g of boiling water, keeping the container covered. Filter through a cloth and squeeze well. When the liquid has cooled, add a tablespoon of 90 ° alcohol. It can be used to disinfect any wound healing will occur quickly.
A delicacy for cats : mix a teaspoon of calaminta powder into the daily ration. It is a drug that cats really like and aids in their digestion, especially when they are in old age.
A tasty appetizer : finely chop 4 tablespoons of calaminta leaves, add oil and salt and mix well. Cut 4 ripe tomatoes in half, empty and salt them, keeping them upside down for about a quarter of an hour. Meanwhile, lightly toast 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs with salt in a small pan with a drizzle of oil, add to the calaminta and fill the tomatoes with the mixture, putting them in the oven.
Against blackheads : mix a tablespoon of calaminta powder with a tablespoon of almond flour. Add two tablespoons of rose water and mix well. Go over the areas affected by blackheads, rubbing lightly then rinse. The skin will be smooth and velvety, perfectly clean. Repeat the treatment every week.
How it is grown : the calaminta is a herbaceous and stoloniferous plant, considered among the aromatic species one of the most rustic, it grows in any type of soil and is also well suited to arid and dry ones, as long as they are in a sunny position. You will be able to sow calaminta like all other similar species but, much more easily, you will be able to obtain new plants by dividing the tufts of the adult ones. Given its diffusion in nature, you will not miss the opportunity to meet some specimens of this plant during walks in the hills or in the mountains: it will be enough to take a part of the head including the root system to be replanted in the shortest possible time directly to mansion. A few waterings in the period of greatest summer heat will be enough to make the plant grow perfectly. Whether you grow it in the ground or in pots, make sure that the root system finds an adequate depth for its vigorous development.

Properties and characteristics
Digestive, refreshing, balsamic, energizing: the properties of mint are different, and mainly affect the digestive and respiratory systems. It is used as a refreshing for the oral cavity, in colucers and toothpastes, but home infusions are also effective, which also improve the functionality of the stomach, liver, intestines. Used in the kitchen, in perfumery, liqueur and pharmacy due to the presence of aromatic substances that recall those of mint, but are much less intense, as specified by Andrea Lo Cicero (in the video below you can see a preview of the episode).
Nfigghiulate with catmint
In my garden, like every year, calamint grows (Calamintha nepeta), better known as "mint", which, if not controlled, invades every corner. This species is widespread throughout Italy, from the plains to the mountains, and is particularly popular in Tuscany and Lazio. It is used both fresh and dried, especially to enhance the flavor of artichokes and mushrooms but also of aquacottas. This morning I collected a nice bunch to prepare stuffed and rolled focaccette which in Sicily are called nfigghiulate. They are always appreciated in the family (especially by my husband who is Sicilian) and their preparation is really simple.
Ingredients (for about ten nfigghiulate)
- 500 g of re-milled durum wheat semolina
- 250 ml of water
- 10 g of fresh brewer's yeast
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of fine salt.
- 50 g of fresh calamint leaves
- extra virgin olive oil
- a pinch of salt.
Pour the crumbled yeast into a bowl and dissolve it with a little warm water. Add the semolina, the remaining water, salt and oil slowly, always kneading, until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for at least three hours.
Roll out the dough into small pieces with the help of a rolling pin to obtain discs with a diameter of about twenty centimeters. Separately prepare a catmint pesto until you get a more or less uniform cream, using your favorite kitchen tool, taking care to wash and dry the leaves well, add a little good oil and season with a pinch of salt. .
Spread the pesto over the entire surface of the discs previously greased with a little oil. Roll the pastry on itself and then wrap to form a spiral. Place the spirals on a large baking tray or on a dripping pan covered with parchment paper, taking care before informing to crush them slightly.
Bake in the oven at 180 ° (less if ventilated) for about forty minutes. If you want you can add cheese and small diced sausage to the catmint pesto on the sheet: obviously everything is tastier. Excellent to enjoy when they are still warm!

The N. x. Faassenii cultivar was first cultivated by Faassen Nurseries in Tegelen, Netherlands, as a hybrid of N. racemosa and N. nepetella This plant is sometimes listed as a cultivar of Nepeta racemosa but is believed to actually be a hybrid between Nepeta racemosa and N. nepetella - making it more correctly listed as a hybrid without a specific epithet or a Nepeta x faassenii cultivar. The hybrid name x faassenii is named for Dutch nurseryman J.H. Faassen who developed the first.

Storia e origini della mentuccia (Clinopodium nepeta o Calamintha nepeta)
La mentuccia è una pianta erbacea perenne della numerosa famiglia delle Lamiaceae e del genere Clinopodium. Originaria dell’Europa mediterranea, è diffusa in quasi tutta Italia (ma è presente anche in Asia centrale e Nordafrica) dove cresce spontanea in zone montane fino a circa 1500 metri, boschi, vicino alle rocce o in prati aperti – ma si coltiva bene anche in vaso – formando cespugli alti circa 50 centimetri, e fiorisce da giugno a ottobre.
Secondo alcuni, il nome nepitella deriva da Nepete (l’antico nome di Nepi dove era particolarmente diffusa), un’altra ipotesi lo lega invece al termine nepa, scorpione in latino, perché si credeva che ne curasse il morso.
Abbinamenti della mentuccia in cucina
Dall’aroma simile alla menta, la nepetella viene usata in cucina per aromatizzare, carne, pesce, funghi (Toscana) e verdure (classici i “carciofi alla romana”).
La si può gustare anche cruda in una insalata o con pomodori.
Tipica è la pasta alla trapanese, a base di spaghetti o rigatoni conditi con la “neputedda”, i pomodorini ciliegino e l’aglio. Ma in Sicilia la mentuccia viene usata anche per aromatizzare le olive da tavola.
Viene utilizzata anche come ingrediente nella preparazione di una tipica frittata pasquale detta “frocia” e in Irpinia (Campania) prende il di “Zenzifero” e viene mescolata alla ricotta per formare il ripieno di ravioli o per imbottire frittate, oppure viene usata per preparare un particolare liquore aromatico.
