Nettles is one of the most generous gifts our dear mother Gaia has given us. She is a wild weed that sprouts up on every continent around the globe in soil that needs regeneration. She is packed with vitamins + minerals, especially iron to bring vitality back to our bodies just as she does for our Earth. She is considered an adaptogenic herb, meaning she helps us adapt to any stress in our environments by soothing our root chakra, nervous system, + immune system. She helps to balance out our hormone levels during all phases of womanhood + her anti-inflammatory traits are great for joint health.

Are you not sure what a tincture is? It simply means that alcohol is used to extract the medicinal alkaloids from the healing plant. Alcohol provides the strongest extraction + also allows for a longer shelf life of about 2 years. There are other liquids or "menstrums" you can use to extract medicine from plants, like apple cider vinegar, food grade glycerin, even honey. These would not be considered tinctures though as they do not use any alcohol. Hope that helps you to understand a little more about herbal medicines.
