Botanical Ingredient Spotlight: NETTLE

Botanical Ingredient Spotlight: NETTLE

You use stinging nettles?? Seriously??

Yep and yep. Stinging nettles are possibly one of my favourite ever plants... I know I say that about a lot of plants, but for reals this time!

I mostly love nettles because they are just so beneficial for us, and every part of the plant can be used.

Nettles take many minerals from the soil, including iron, which makes them beneficial in cases of anaemia, and for women during their menstruating years - they can easily be made into a tea and blend well with other herbs for this. Plus, their high content of vitamin C means our bodies can properly access and absorb that iron.

Aren't plants just magical!

Nettle also has lots of benefits for our skin, indicated for sensitive skin, eczema, and (perhaps ironically) allergic rashes.

And it's a great ingredient for hair care, too - said to counteract hair loss, prevent and cure dandruff, and stimulate the scalp to improve the condition of dry or "lifeless" hair.

We add nettle to Nettle & Lavender Nourishing Shampoo (obvs, the clue is in the name) for those very benefits, and customer feedback certainly agrees!
