The plant is known as “stinging nettle” because of its hollow hairs (tricomes) on the leaves and stem that cause a stinging sensation upon contact. It infuses into a tea that is dark and rich in flavor. The leaves can be steeped as nettle tea, incorporated into herbal infusion blends, and added to soups and broths.
Nettle supports healthy urinary function and has mild diuretic action and helps to maintain upper respiratory health.*
