These dried Nettle leaves have been picked at their most beneficial, i.e. before the middle of June. Nettle Tea has a cleansing action on the body, helping to improve circulation and kidney function. They also help the pancreas in the control of blood-sugar levels.
Nettles are often used in the treatment of skin infections such as eczema and psoriasis, ironic, as they have given their name to certain skin conditions, Urticaria. Latin for Stinging Nettle is Urtica.
The tea is very refreshing and has a pleasant aroma. Can be drunk at any time of the day.
It goes without saying that if you're pregnant (or are under the doc for anything) caution should be exercised with herbal decoctions.
