Stinging Nettle ~ Urtica urens
$7 per 20gram
Nettle is most famous for its iron content, particularly for pregnant women. But it also contains calcium, chlorine (removes poison from the body – not just for pools!) iodine, magnesium, potassium, sodium (essential for potassium uptake) silicon and sulphur (the beauty mineral) which are also all wonderful things for a woman with child…. and everyone else!
The preferred nettle species for use in herbal medicine is Greater Nettle (Urtica dioica) which I unfortunately do not have access too. But Urtica urens still has a place on my nutritional shelf and certainly in my homepathic kit.
Wildcrafted from our organic property, dried, processed and freezer treated (for insect control).
