Talking Nettles with jim mcdonald ~ Video ~

 

Well, well...a bit of time has passed since the Rootstalk Festival happened back in 2011, but we are SO excited to finally bring you a new video series from the event featuring some of our favorite herb walks and storytelling moments. These videos are fun and informative, and really make our hearts smile to experience this wonderful gathering all over again. Such sweet memories!

Next up is herbalist jim mcdonald's entertaining exploration of a favorite spring herb: nettle! There are so many different ways to use nettle and you'll probably learn some new preparations from jim during this in-depth 25 minute video. He'll teach you about nettle sting therapy, share his secrets of raw spiced nettle treats, his favorite herbal combinations for nettle infusions, using nettle seeds, and more interesting tidbits. Plus, he also gives a great description of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and how nettle can be helpful. There might even be a surprise guest star herbalist in the crowd...

Thanks to LearningHerbs.com for putting this together for us all to enjoy!
