I used to only know Stinging Nettle (urtica dioica) as a pesky plant that gives a rash. But I discovered last year that it is an essential plant among Herbalists and can be used for healing. Recently, my go to drink in the evening has been a nettle tea because I've been experiencing allergy symptoms. Nettles are particularly useful as an anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory! They can also help purify blood, relieve fatigue and alleviate eczema. Who knew that I'd start to fall in love with the plant I used to actively avoid? 🌿// 8x10 original watercolor on paper. $80 CAD plus shipping. Comment CLAIM to purchase.
