Nettle, also known as stinging nettle, is a perennial herb native to Europe, Africa, and North America. As the common name implies, the plant is armed with hair-like stingers that inject histamine and other inflammatory chemicals when brushed against.
Nettle leaf has a long history of use as a food crop as it is highly nutritious. The dried leaf is commonly used in herbal tea blends, although it is also frequently encapsulated or tinctured. Nettles are full of iron, vitamin C, and magnesium and assist in blood flow, muscle pain, and circulation.
Note: Take caution, as nettle is a diuretic. Those already taking diuretics, have low blood pressure, have problems with their blood sugar, or are pregnant should avoid use. Nettles can also react with certain medications, including sedatives, lithium, and blood pressure medications.
Protection: Nettle is believed to have protective properties that can help to ward off negative energy and promote a sense of safety and security. It is often used in spiritual practices to create a protective barrier around oneself or a space.
Cleansing: Nettle is also associated with cleansing and purification. It is believed to help clear away negative energy and promote positive energy flow. It is often used in spiritual practices, such as smudging, to purify a space and promote spiritual well-being.
Strength: Nettle is associated with strength and resilience. It is believed to help enhance physical strength and endurance, as well as mental and emotional resilience.
Abundance: Nettle is associated with abundance and prosperity. It is believed to help attract wealth and abundance into one's life, both materially and spiritually.
Root Chakra: Nettle is associated with the root chakra, which is located at the base of the spine and is associated with grounding, stability, and a sense of belonging. It is believed to help activate and balance this chakra, allowing for greater connection to the earth and a sense of rootedness.
Whether used in herbal medicine, spiritual practices, or as a food source, nettle is considered to be a powerful plant ally that can support overall well-being, both physically and spiritually. It is important to approach the use of nettle and other herbs with intention, respect, and gratitude for their gifts and blessings.
