Frontier Co-op Bulk Organic Cut & Sifted Stinging Nettle Leaf is a high-quality organic herb with a pleasantly herbaceous taste with a slight bitterness and a faint herbaceous aroma. Nettle is used as a rejuvenating wellness tea, in some foods and as a ingredient in shampoos, hair rinses and skin care products. The fresh leaves irritate the skin, but the "stinging" constituents quickly dissipate when the herb is dried.
