This herb, also known as Hedge Nettle, was long revered throughout ancient Europe for its healing and magical properties. Thought of as a powerful panacea, it was the most prized medicinal plant by Anglo-Saxons and used to cure forty-seven different ailments by the Romans.
All the aerial parts of this plant can be dried & used as a tea. Use 1/2 - 1 table spoon into hot water for 5-10 minutes, remember to keep it covered as to not let all the precious medicinal elements get away during steeping.
Wood betony’s longstanding reputation as a panacea still echoes in folk sayings, such as the Spanish “he has as many virtues as betony” and the Italian “sell your coat and buy betony.” The herb’s reputation spread on the other side of the Atlantic, too: “There is no illness brought by cold in which betony cannot be administered effectively,” wrote the Colonial American herbalist John Sauer.

I am a Clinical Herbalist and grower. What does that mean? I study the plants and their constituents (ingredients) and how those interact with the human body. I have a full time practice and I study how plant based compounds restore our bodies to homeostasis. I am a member of multiple groups where I am mentored and guided by licensed physicians and specialists in their field. I am also a mentor to those wanting to learn. I study Chinese, Indigenous, and Western Herbalism/Medicine. The cognitive connection I have with the plants is a just like any relationship, it blossoms with nurturing and time. As a grower I have special connection to the herbs we use and sell, as I have watched them grow from seeds. The truest from of herbalism is botany, chemistry, history, plant husbandry, and the desire to honor the plants in their highest form. , I can truly say I am grateful for the relationship with our Mother Earth. And all of the gifts she has given us. I am the Founder and teacher/mentor at Fortress of Faith Adventures where people can experience hands on with regeneration practices. We are members of the OAA, TravelOK.com, certified organic grower, and work with many others in our comm
