nettles can definitely help with allergies...my dp takes it daily and hasn't in the past....this summer has been the best ever for him now that he drinks nettle tea daily.
I have been making hot tea at work each day and just having a cup there and then I will tend to not have anymore in a day...I was really good at the beginning of summer to have quart jars of cold tea each day...and have drifted away from it.
The recipe I use is:
equal parts of nettles, red raspberry, lemon balm, alfalfa, oatstraw
1/2 parts of dandelion, rosehips, lavender, spearmint
heading to the kitchen to brew some up right now though... I need reminders.
