One of my personal favorite uses for nettles, is as an herbal allergy treatment. Many people in our locality suffer from allergies in the spring and summer months. The symptoms of this allergy include runny nose, respiratory congestion, and sneezing.
Drinking a tea of dried nettles every morning, beginning in late winter before plants begin to leaf out, will eliminate these symptoms for many people, and greatly reduce them for others. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, it is really worth your time and effort to give nettles a try.
