Herb of the Day: Nettle {Allergy Relief}

The herb most commonly associated with treating allergy symptoms is nettle. The leaves contain a quality that blocks histamine receptors – just like common medications, but without the side effects!

For most of the US, allergy season is swooping in to sweep you off your feet with a series of sneezing fits. The herb most commonly associated with treating allergy symptoms is nettle. The leaves contain a quality that blocks histamine receptors – just like common medications, but without the side effects! The benefits of nettle go far beyond just allergy symptoms:

  • Allergies
  • Inflammation
  • Water Retention
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Arthritis
  • PMS
  • Eczema
  • Vaginal infection
  • UTI
  • Candida
  • Milk production
  • and more.

Herbalist Susan Weed has said nettle is “one of the finest nourishing tonics known.” It is high in iron and vitamin c and has been studied intently as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s. You will commonly find it being used in tea blends and in infusions to treat everything from inflammation to increasing milk production for the breastfeeding mother.
