Nettle has been used worldwide for centuries in a variety of countries and cultures. It has been eaten as a wild food plant, applied topically to the skin, and drunk as an herbal tea. It was used extensively for its fibers and was woven into cloth. Nettle fibers were considered to be high quality and comparable to flax or hemp in Northern Europe. Nettle supports healthy urinary function and has mild diuretic action.*
Our European nettle leaf is being collected from long standing organic stands. It infuses into a deep green brew, with a rich vegetal flavor and a potent chlorophyll aftertaste. If you prefer a lighter flavored nettle leaf, our North American nettle will be the perfect fit.
USES AND PREPARATIONS
Commonly the dried leaf and/or dried root is used as a tea, tincture or powdered and encapsulated. A fresh plant tincture may be made as well (just be careful!!). Additionally, the young tender shoots of the fresh plant may be eaten or made into juice.
