I am interested in making a stinging nettle infusion. I have an abundance of this plant on my property.
My question is do you use the young leaves or use the mature plant to make the infusion?
I recently experienced anaphylactic shock, currently taking medication for a few days.
I sense this would be the remedy to restore my self, especially that this plant surrounds me here.
Thanks for any input.
Many thanks for writing in. You use the young plants before flowering -- and they are dried, not fresh for the herbal infusions. Of course, fresh would be great for eating... I would say you are definitely on the right path with the use of nettle and Susun is a firm believer that what we need does show up around us -- as a gentle reminder... Although perhaps not so gentle with the nettle!
