    Nettle is abundant in the spring and it is a very nutritious leafy green that is high in vitamins, minerals and protein. Traditionally in western Canada, there were few edible plants in the early spring and Nettles were particularly prized. It was easily available to people as it could be foraged in the wild.

    Nettle prefers nitrogen-rich soil and is commonly found in the understory of riparian areas, along the edges of meadows, in open, rich forests, and in soil where animal or human waste is present.

  • Directions

    Boil water, steep dry Nettle Leaf with clarifying herbs like rosemary, sage, or antiseptic lavender for 3 to 5 minutes, and serve immediately. The tea will have an earthy, almost grassy flavour.

  • Uses

    - Nettle tea is believed to be one of the best herbal infusions for overall health and wellness.
    - A stinging Nettle infusion is an herbal tonic that you make by steeping dried Nettles in hot water for several hours. After steeping, you strain the liquid and drink it. Nettle infusions tend to be a good source of many micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals.
