Stinging nettle has a long list of uses, however, below are a few of it’s most common medicinal uses.
Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years as a diuretic (to rid the body of excess fluids.)
It can be used to treat bladder infection symptoms, like the constant urge to urinate.
Studies have shown that taking stinging nettle internally can greatly decrease allergy symptoms, in particular, hay fever, seasonal allergies and hives.
It can be used as a blood tonic, and help detoxify the liver.
Stinging Nettle has been commonly used for joint and muscle pain and arthritis.
It can be used to naturally help increase breast milk production.
If you want the stinging nettle tincture in order to benefit from its richness in iron, because for example you may have low iron this would not be a good idea because alcohol is not a good solvent of metals in herbs and does not extract iron in the tincture.
For that it is better to use fresh/dry stinging nettle and make an infusion in water in the traditional way, if you want to receive the specific benefits.
Nettle tincture will help the urinary tract, detoxification, kidneys but will not help with anemia or hair loss.
10-12 drops 3 times per day direct in your mouth or added to water or tea
