Stiniging Nettle have long been the bane of kids and hikers alike. They lurk in fields, especially near streams and underground water sources, waving those sharp-shaped leaves about just waiting for you to brush up against them. The sting from Nettles is temporary, though it can hang on for a few days if you’re particularly sensitive.

That sting has been used as a home remedy for releiving the pain of arthritis and inflamed joints. Folks brush the nettles against the inflamed area to encourage the sting. Nettle’s stinging-numbing action penetrates the skin and tissues, sending his anti-inflammatory energy deeper into the joint, which eases the pain and swelling. I can attest to the efficacy of this menthod, although it’s not a super pleasant one. Luckily, there are better ways to tap into the healing and nutritive elements of Nettles.
