May 2011 – Nettles

This month is all about one of my all time favorite herbs, Nettles. While those in the main stream world may think herbalists are a bunch of nuts to revere such a potentially painful plant, those in the herb world know the sting isn’t all that bad and is actually beneficial!

One of many highly nutritious herbs, Nettles is often sought out and even intentionally planted so the one tending the planting can reap the benefits. Those with kidney and liver problems will soon find an ally in Nettles as he has an affinity for these organs as well as the muscles.

This month, you’ll learn all about the many benefits of Nettles, how to eat him (the sting goes away when he is cooked) and the best preparations as a medicinal herb.
