My name is Beverly and I had recently seen your video about infusions on Ms.Wildcrafts' online health summit.
I found it extremely interesting and I rushed out to see which of the 5 herbs I could get at my local store. They had nettle root and oat straw so I got them but I'm certain that you had meant for the nettle to be the leaves and not the root.
You are surely an extremely busy lady but if possible would you please confirm whether or not they are interchangeable.
Thank you for your contribution on the summit and looking forward to learning more.
Glad that you enjoyed Susun’s presentation. For the nettle infusion you do need to use the leaf. It is not interchangeable with the root. The leaf can be used long term and frequently as the herbs used for the daily infusions are nourishing and gentle. Think of them as food. The root is more medicinal, used for specific purposes and more short term.
In Susun's book, Healing Wise, she recommends the root mainly for a urinary strengthener, immune system/lymphatic strengthener, kidney stones, prostate issues, chronic cystitis, etc. A dose of dried nettle root infusion is only 4-8 ounces daily as opposed to the leaf of which most of us drink a quart or more...
