Storage: Due to the Beeyoutiful's Herbs and Bulk Foods being organic or wildcrafted, there is a slight chance that there could be some naturally occurring bugs. Beeyoutiful takes precautions on our end to minimize the chances, but we do suggest that you store them in a cold area - possibly the freezer - in an air tight container.
Nettles are one of the wild plants still gathered each spring in rural regions as a "spring tonic" and pot-herb. It's a very nutritious vegetable that's cleansing and easy to digest.
An old country remedy for chronic rheumatism and arthritis is "Urtication" or flogging with nettles. Some folks even keep a nettle plant growing indoors on a sunny windowsill, so that the healing stings might be applied throughout the winter.
It is a strange fact that the juice of the nettle proves an antidote for its own sting, and being applied will afford instant relief.
Extracts of nettle have been included in hair tonics for centuries due to its purported ability to stimulate hair growth.
