Stinging nettle, perhaps the most simultaneously hated and beneficial herb on Earth. With over 125 documented health benefits, when it comes to this green witch’s medicine, beauty’s in the hand of the beholder!

A surprising feature of herbal research is that it is seldom the rare, exotic, and beautiful plant that proves the most interesting; more often it is some common, familiar, and despised weed that is discovered to have undreamed-of virtues.
