Mountain Rose Herbs was out of nettle leaf when I made a big co-op order a week ago. But someone in the co-op wanted nettle root powder, and I bought 4oz of it.
I was hoping I'd be able to use it in a way to help with allergies, as I think nettle leaf infusions (tea? never sure what it's called?!) have helped me with seasonal allergies in the past.
Anyway, now that I have it in hand, and I google it, I don't see that people use nettle root powder for allergies. Instead I see a lot of use for prostate health purposes.
I feel like nettle has few contraindications so in a sense I feel OK just trying it out, but do wonder if anyone has any thoughts about using nettle root (powder is what i have) for allergy purposes.
