Stinging nettle is a powerful healing herb, and stinging nettle tea has many benefits.

Nettles grow in damp, nutrient-rich soils in temperate climates. Most species are perennial, and they often grow in patches or clumps. True to their name, they sting. If you casually brush against the leaves or stems, their hollow needle-like projections inject a slightly irritating substance into your skin. "The sting" is usually a minor irritation and can be therapeutic. Some people with arthritis find that they experience less pain and inflammation in that area after that initial sting.

In this episode, I share how you can work with stinging nettle, specifically for allergies. But nettle has many gifts, from healing food to powerful herbal medicine that goes beyond allergies.
