Stinging nettle’s leaves and root provide a wide variety of health benefits such as reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reduce stress, control blood sugars, can treat hay fever, migraines and enlarged prostate in men. This particular variety of Nettle can be infused into water on its own and drank as nettle tea. However, Mama Magick highly recommends adding honey to your infusion to take away any bitterness before drinking. Magickal uses include protection, souring, hexing and banishing spells as well as healing and forgiveness and finding your inner-strength rituals, to name a few.
IMPORTANT: Although this herb is safe to use after the birth of your baby, you should NOT use stinging nettle while you are pregnant. It could cause uterine contractions and possibly miscarriage, please use safely.
