Stinging Nettle, don't get stung!

Nettle has been used for centuries as food and medicine. The leaves are highly nourishing and lubricating to the system. Often used as a tonic for those recovering from illness or when the body is in a state of depletion or exhaustion.




One of its main benefits, other than the fact that it is so highly nutritious and full of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, are inflammatory - related.


- Helps the immune system by reducing an overactive histamine reaction (eg rashes)

- Helps skin conditions such as eczema and helps alleviate joint pain (inflammatory pain)

- Its sting (yes its 'stinging nettle' ! ) often helped in muscle pain as the sting causes increased blood circulation helping again, with flushing out inflammatory byproducts


And , nettle tea or nettle infused oil can also help very much with reducing hair loss and stimulating hair growth.


Just made some tea from dried leaves and infusing oil 😃


Harvesting is a little tricky, tried my best not to get stung!
