The Herbs of the earth, are one of God's greatest gifts to man. Stinging Nettle is one such phenomenon. It is such a fantastic all around herb and should be a part of everyone's herbal collection. It is so versatile and has so many uses which we will shortly discuss in more detail. Some of its many positive attributes include its high vitamin and mineral content, its outstanding track record in hair growth, its antihistamine properties, its ability to reduce hemorrhaging, joint pain and rheumatism and more.
Stinging Nettle is often mistaken for a common weed. It has soft green leaves that can actually be added to salads and is often described as tasting like "spinach". To prepare the leaves for salad, use gloves and rub the leaves together under running water to remove stingers. The leaves have tiny hairs which although is harmless, can cause irritation and rash. This can actually be relieved by the juice of the leaves. This plant is so healing, all parts can be used fresh or dried such as the seeds, leaves, and roots. These can be made into a tea and used as a daily health tonic.
Stinging nettle is rich in zinc, manganese, magnesium , B vitamins, Vitamin C, folate, fatty acids and more, which are the vitamins and minerals needed for hair growth.

In some cultures, the herb is taken through out pregnancy to prevent hemorrhage and also afterwards to help with milk production. This herb can help lower blood sugar in diabetes.
