Day 12 – #30DaysOfCovid

Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is one of our most powerful herbs we have growing here, more potent even than many of the imported so-called superfoods. She can be used in the kitchen as a vegetable and for infusions, as well as for various ailments such as muscle and joint pain and many more. Nettle grows plentifully and can be harvested CO free at no cost (at least if you go by bike). I am so glad she is back.

If you want to learn how I use her in the kitchen, you can read about it here (in German).

To pose in a way that emphasizes the plant as well as its effect on the skin.

It’s ok to use the same location more than once. This one still holds endless possibilities.
