Mistletoe/stinging nettle

Post # 1
I very much like herbal magic and so look for herbs to gather up.
There are these two kinds of herbs too common in my location :misteltoe and stinging nettle, which I know nothing about.I simply have heard that they are medicinal.Please I need explanations about the uses from those who know.

Your profile gives your age as 44?
However; mistletoe is a parasite plant growing on broad leaf trees.It draws nourishment from the tree sap,and carbon dioxide from the air.
It is often believed to have magic qualities,especially Oak mistletoe,to the Druids. Many years ago, a sprig would be worn under the hat to ward off witchcraft! (Nonsense!)
Mistletoe has no medicinal qualities.
Stinging nettles can be quite painful to exposed skin! They can be used to make a very nourishing soup. Apart from the soup, I don't think they have any medicinal properties.

to counteract the stinging nettle's poison rub the affected area with vinegar. it neutralises the toxin and gives immense relief from irritation!

I have stinging nettle in my yard and it is one of the best things you can put in your body! It is a cleansing agent for your liver, a blood tonic, very light taste, overall it is a wonderful thing to add to any tea. Once the needles are exposed to heat, they simply collapse and are no longer a threat. I cut young, tender shoots in the spring-wear gloves as they are nasty for hours after you touch them. Then I dry them on screens, or if I have gathered older leaves I string bundles and hang from the garage rafters-but this is an herb you don't want to bump up against so usually I just toss the leaves on a screen. Then when dry I crumple them up and use them like any other herbal tea. Not bad tasting at all, and with a little honey, a nice light beverage.
