Nettle Leaf Organic
Nettle: Urtica dioica (L.)
Why Nettle Leaf? Sometimes called stinging nettle, this botanical is a bit bristly in the wild but is a health hero in your wellness kit. It is excellent in teas, tinctures, or capsules. Nettle has an affinity with the urinary system and can promote the wellness of the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract.
Quality Assured: Our certified organic nettle leaf is responsibly sourced in the U.S.A. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

Yellow dock Rumex crispus root: 1 ounce
Dandelion Taraxacum officinale root: 1 ounce
Nettle Urtica dioica: 1 ounce
Watercress Nasturtium officinale: 1 ounce
Parsley Petroselinum crispum: 1 ounce
Blend the dandelion and yellow dock roots together and weigh out one-half ounce of the blended roots. You may need to coarsely chop or even grind the roots depending on how whole they are. Use one-half ounce of the blended dandelion and yellow dock roots and one-half pint of water to prepare a decoction.
Blend the nettle, watercress, and parsley and weigh out one-half ounce of the blended herbs. While the dandelion/yellow dock decoction is still hot, pour it over one-half ounce of the nettle/watercress/parsley blend and infuse for 10 minutes. Store for no more than 24 hours in the refrigerator.
Drink one-half cup two to three times a day. If these measurements will make too much tea, you can use one teaspoon of herb or root to one cup of water to prepare each component. This will leave you with just under two cups of finished tea.
