Introduction. The existence of various health problems is the basis for the need of treatment to  improve physical health. One of the treatments for the elderly can be done herbal/organic by consuming steeped leaves of cat's whiskers. The cat's whiskers plant has been widely used traditionally to treat several diseases and conditions such as rheumatism, inflammation of the kidneys, bladder, gout and hypertension. The aim of the study was to analyze the effect of steeping cat's whiskers leaves on the frequency of urination within 24 hours. Method. The design uses one group pretest post test group design. The research subjects were 20 elderly people with hypertension. A decoction of cat's whiskers leaves weighing 1 gram is given once a day for seven days. The observation sheet was used to assess the number of urinary frequencies every 24 hours for seven days. Wilcoxon analysis was used to determine the significant value before and after administration of steeping cat's whiskers leaves. Results. The infusion of cat's whiskers can increase the frequency of urination with an average value of 3.75x/day before being given steeping of cat's whiskers leaves and increasing to 5.95x/day after being given the steeping of cat's whiskers leaves. The results of the analysis show a significant value, namely the value of r = 0.000. Conclusion.
