A perennial with separate male and female plants¸ Nettle (Urtica dioica) grows up to 4 feet tall and has toothed¸ pointed leaves that sting when touched. This sting causes a burning sensation. This because each hair consists of a sharp¸ hollow spine that breaks off easily¸ allowing the liquid inside¸ formic acid¸ to be released into the object causing the injury. In spite of its stinging¸ Nettles are of considerable use in many ways¸ including culinary; they contain vitamins A and C¸ iron¸ and a variety of other minerals. The young shoots can also be boiled as a vegetable. Nettle fibers can be spun into rope and made into cloth. Cosmetically¸ Nettle is a good cleanser¸ especially for oily skin. As a tea¸ Nettle may be taken hot or cold and many prefer it sweetened and flavored with lemon. Since 1922¸ Alvita has been making the finest herb teas money can buy.
