Nettle (Urtica dioica)

The beautiful spikey chlorophyll filled leaves of the Nettle have been prized as a highly nutritive food and medicine for many decades. They have an array of constituents which have an anti-inflammatory and depurative action on the body such as flavonoids (rutin & quercetin), silicic acid, amines (histamine, choline, serotonin), vitamins and minerals (iron, calcium, Potassium, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, Vitamins A, B2, C, E, K), and all that packed into one little leaf!

Nettle has traditionally been used as a tonic for inflammatory joint and skin conditions, while also helping with liver support. Drinking Nettle tea is such a beautiful way to help manage skin conditions and get some additional nutrients into your day whilst squeezing in that much needed me time.

So what are you waiting for? Time to get the kettle on!
