Nettle Leaf C/S, Organic
Ingredients: Nettle leaves.
Herb Description & Ecology: Urtica dioica is an herbaceous perennial in the Urticaceae family. The plant is known as “stinging nettle” because of its hollow hairs (tricomes) on the leaves and stem that cause a stinging sensation upon contact. Originally native to Europe, nettles can now be found worldwide in wet environments and moist soils. Our organic nettle leaf is harvested from large, deep-rooted stands in Europe and infuses into a tea that is dark and rich in flavor. The leaves can be steeped as nettle tea, incorporated into herbal infusion blends, and added to soups and broths.
Nettle supports healthy urinary function and has mild diuretic action and helps to maintain upper respiratory health.
