This is a straight forward alcohol extract where plant matter is added and allowed to set for prolonged periods. The resulting liquid contains the extracted plants sought after herbal qualities and is generally taken in small droplet quantities. These extracts have a rather long shelf life.
Nettle (Urtica dioica) is also known as stinging nettle, common nettle, and garden nettle. It is originally from northern Europe and northern Asia.
The nettle plant is herbaceous with fine hairs on the leaves and stems that contain a chemical. This chemical causes skin irritation and pain when it comes into contact with the skin — thus the name “stinging nettle.” If you’ve ever been out weeding the yard or searching for wildflowers, you’ve probably discovered this on your own!
Nettle is a fantastic tonic herb, with high levels of iron can be taken by anyone with anaemia and a great way to improve health in general. Also great for seasonal allergies, adrenal fatigue and detoxing.
