  1. Can i find CODONOPSIS/NETTLES freely in nature where i live? I live in Ottawa ON CANADA and how would i prep them. Could i make a tea or some brew?  Just asking!

    • You actually can! A friend of mine was talking about this the other day. What he would do is to pick them when they first come up in the spring, before they are around a 12 inches tall. Be sure to wear gloves, he said that you will get stung if you try to pick them with your hands. Only take a few of the leaves from the top and put them in a plastic bag, wear gloves to transport them in the sink. The wash them thoroughly to get out the parts that sting off the leaves. Once you do that, you can either boil them with some type of tea, and add some lemon and honey for flavor, or even a dash of cinnamon. You can also put them in numerous other dishes!
