About Nettle: Beds of stinging nettle grow in a special area on Avena’s biodynamic farm so that their deeply green leafy tops can be harvested for Avena’s tincture and teas. In May, Avena's gardeners, wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants and purple gloves, carefully cut several hundreds pounds of fresh nettles for drying. One of the most nutritive herbs known to herbalists, stinging nettle increases energy levels, strengthens the immune, musculoskeletal and lymphatic systems, supports the upper respiratory tract (especially during pollen season), promotes kidney health, and enhances a feeling of overall well-being and vitality.
