This Indiana Stinging Nettle is foraged on several wooded areas in central Indian far away from any crop fields, roads, or walkways to ensure that they have not come into contact with any herbicides, insecticides, etc. Only the top few sets of leaves are harvested off each plant to ensure that the colony will continue to prosper.

After harvesting, the leaves are immediately double-rinsed, dried whole in small batches, then hand-crumbled into an air-tight container and stored in a cool, dark place until it is packaged for shipment.

Scientific Name: Urtica dioica
Common Name(s): Stinging Nettle, Nettle

Description: Singing Nettle is a plant of the nettle family Urticaceae that grows in full sun forest clearings in eastern and central North America. It has a single or branched stem with opposite leaves, stinging hairs, light green flowers in panicles, and leaves with toothed margins.

As far as nutrition is concerned, few other plants can match these beauties. They’re packed with iron, calcium, vitamins C, K, A, and B, as well as sodium, potassium, and phosphorus. Nettles are also surprisingly rich in antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lutein, and they have oodles of essential amino acids too!
