NETTLE - Most people experience a stinging sensation when touching fresh Nettle leaves. After soaking the leaves in water for a few hours they lose their sting, but they do impart, to the water, a beautiful astringent quality. After shaving or as a facial, Nettle provides a marvelous antiseptic service and functions as a skin toner. On further examination of Nettle we find the properties necessary to correct the miseries of bladder inflammation, dizziness, spleen and lymphatic problems, liver, and yes, even the "heartbreak of seborrhea, eczema, and psoriasis". Part of Nettle's corrective powers are due to the presence of a rich source of the mineral element chromium which is essential for the pancreas to produce and utilize the hormone insulin. To restore hair color, the extract is massaged nightly into the scalp. For weight loss, Nettle is combined half and half with Bladderwrack, 40 drops of the mixture three to four times per day.
