Nettle Urtica dioica

The humble stinging nettle has long been prized for its early spring nutritious and chlorophyll-rich leaves.

It is a rejuvenator of the soil, quickly inhabiting disturbed ground and drawing minerals from deep within the earth.

Our very own herbalist-of-the-people, Nicholas Culpeper understood that nettles ‘…consume the superfluities in the body of man that the coldness of moisture of winter has left behind.’ And, as such, nettle has long been used as a herb for removing unwanted wastes, ideal for our Cleanse tea and Clean Greens blends.
