Stinging Nettle is an incredibly nutrient-dense herbal ally. Classified as a Nutritive herb, Nettle is the only edible plant on earth to contain the complete essential amino acid profile. A cup of this tea daily is a multivitamin that fiercely protects health and encourages glowing skin. Amazingly nutritious for skin, we use Nettle in the Clarify Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea and the Clarify Blemish-Control Skincare range.
Nettles grow tiny hairs on the surface of their leaves and stems, and they must be lightly steamed to disarm their stinging hairs. Harvest only while wearing full protection such as long sleeves and gloves. It’s well worth the effort, as Nettles offer a nutrient profile that is not found in any other food or plant medicine on the planet. Stinging Nettle is known as the most nutritious wild plant on earth, boasting vitamins A, C, K, several B’s, calcium, iron, folic acid, the complete profile of essential amino acids, proteins, and so much more.
Nettles are often used in Plant Medicine to nourish the body, replenish blood, treat anemia, reduce and manage allergies, treat arthritis and joint pain, and heal numerous skin disorders. Nettle is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, potassium and chlorophyll.
