Urtica dioica, often known as common nettle or stinging nettle is full of antioxidants and minerals, and nourishes the whole body!
Picking it might be something you are not so keen on, but if you pinch it firmly and with purpose, you are less likely to get stung. You can of course use a glove or a scarf in order to break off the top of the plant – always go for the non flowering plant, or the top growth of leaves.
Steep them in boiling water for 5 minutes, for a nourishing tea! Enjoy.
Nettles an also be added to Smoothies!
