Nettle

Scientific Name: Urtica dioica
Local Name/s: Bicchukas

If you could only have a few herbs, the ‘World Herb’ Nettle would certainly be one of them.  Many species of humans have used this deeply nourishing Spring ‘bitter green’ for at least 80,000 years to make fabrics, ropes, meals and medicines. Simultaneously deeply cleansing and detoxing yet strongly nourishing and fortifying, it has an affinity for Blood/Liver as well the Genito-Urinary system where it also is a nutritive astringent.
