Stinging nettle, or Urtica dioica, is an herbaceous perennial that thrives in wet climates and moist soils. Nettles earn their name from the tiny hairs found on the leaves and stems that cause a stinging sensation upon contact with skin. Nettle leaves have long been used fresh as a wild food in spring and then dried for its beneficial properties. These North American nettle leaves are organically cultivated in the United States and make a light brew when steeped as nettle tea or when added to an herbal infusion blend. Nettle leaves are harvested in the spring, once the plant has had time to mature but before it goes into flower.
Nettle supports healthy urinary function and has mild diuretic action and helps to maintain upper respiratory health. It can also be helpful in relieving allergies, muscle aches, gout symptoms, and arthritis.
North American nettle leaf produces a light infusion, with a mild flavor and grass-like undertones. This cultivated leaf does not brew as strong as the European nettle leaf.
