Nettle is considered by many to be the ‘rock-star’ of herbs.
Nettle is used to treat all sorts of ailments including gout, rheumatism, fatigue, anemia and skin problems to name a few. Perhaps it is due to it’s nourishing nature that many purport nettle to heal and rejuvenate so well.
Particularly rich in iron and calcium, nettle contains a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Nettle is easy to take on a daily basis as it makes a pleasant ‘green’ tasting tea and can be added to soups and stews. Grinding into a powder and adding to smoothies is an excellent way to supercharge your morning or make it more appealing to children.
We grow a lot of nettle on our farm and revel in it’s vibrant green energy. This plant is a favourite to grow as we get such a kick out of the way it vibrates as we approach it. Much love for this plant!
