My great grandmother always used nettles in
her diet . She lived to a ripe old age of 103 and whilst I am not advocating that nettles will help you live longer I certainly believe in its powerful potential to treat a
minefield of ailments for better health .
Since moving to the countryside I have embraced the simple life in Aghalee and whilst growing my own vegetables the pesky stinging plant wouldn't stop interfering as if to say-
me! I'm much better than all these lot!"
At the same time, whilst embracing my
40's and looking at more natural cures for better health, I discovered too how nettles may help with hormonal changes etc
I also didn't want to go down the HRT route and thus began My obsession with this amazing health boosting herb.
So instead of ripping it out, I let it grow and I harvest only the youngest of nettles each year. I find it amazing that the nasty old nettle, in a true twist of nature, may actually
help ease many health issues.
It is highly recommended for its nutritional & medicinal values and I would encourage anyone at any age to read about its array of surprising benefits that can
hardly be fitted into one page!
*NEW* Nettle Powder
You name it you nettle it! My new nettle powder can be used for almost anything you want! I particularly love adding it to smoothies/veg juices,soups and baking.. Its a great way of sneaking the green stuff in to those who aren't so keen!
As with any herbal or medical treatment it doesn't always agree with everyone so just be sure to check with your doctor since nettles can interfere with certain pharmaceuticals.. Pregnant women & nursing mothers should also take doctors advice before trying out nettle tea. As with children too you should consult a pediatrician before adding it to their diet.
My Hair & Scalp Tonic
To my shock and horror I noticed that my hair was becoming thinner so it made total sense to give my lack lustre locks some nettle love..
Packed with so many nutrients and minerals, using nettles for combating hair loss and help in re-growth. is one of the oldest hair treatments.. I can honestly say that in the last 2 years I have not used a conditioner & my hair feels no thinner but a much more .healthy happy head.
My tonic has added rosemary oil which may help in stimulating hair follicles, raw apple cider vinegar to remove product build up, leaving a soft smooth shine..
I had hoped (and believe me I tried) to make an all natural product but being bound by regulations I have had to add a preservative. The one that I use is
approved by the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association of Northern Ireland and my ingredients have been fully assessed,certified and in compliance.
On the plus side the preservative has anti-fungal properties which can help with skin irritations and inflammation and is widely used in many cosmetics and food products...(whilst
subtle highlights are ok I do not recommend using on fully bleached hair).
Animals may also benefit from nettle.(I have found it in many dog foods).
Mollie, who we rescued, was in need of much love and care as her coat had been neglected. I began to secretly mix dried nettle into her food for extra nutrition. and bathe her with my nettle tonic.
.Please check with your local vet before giving nettle to your furry friend .
