Stinging nettles have a scary name but they're actually an amazingly beneficial plant with a variety of uses. Sure, you might not want to touch this plant without gloves as it produces an irritation to the skin but when you consume it in tea, it can actually relieve allergy symptoms! Another great use for nettles is in skin and hair products.
Did you know stinging nettles is actually one of the oldest remedies for hair loss? It also is a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory making it beneficial for people with eczema and dry or itchy skin. Rich in vitamins A and E, there are a whole host of other nutrients and special properties to this amazing herb.
It can also heal wounds and treat insect bites. We use nettle leaf extract in our Steam Hand and Body Cream
along with aloe vera and shea butter so you get an ultra healing, mega-moisturizing surge of nutrients to your skin with every pump.
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
