Nettle (Urtica dioica)

Cerridwen Greenleaf (author of The Herbal Healing Handbook) introduces us to nettle which relieves allergies while boosting your immune system.

Nettle has been used as a healer for untold centuries; it relieves allergies, it is an immune booster, and it can even help with a distended prostate. It is also a superfood and beloved for its nutrients. If you are working with fresh nettles, wear gloves to avoid the stinging. Cooking or drying removes any irritant. Any herb or health food store will have dried nettle both in bulk and capsule form. Make nettle tea by steeping two teaspoons of leaves for ten minutes covered or “take the capsules in recommended doses of 300 to 500 mg twice a day.
