Nettle Leaf - Urica dioica
Nettle Leaf Powder

Nettle has quite a few believed medicinal properties, and many more than I can cover here in a paragraph. I'll go more into the science with citations on the specific page I typed up for it. For starters it's used by herbalist for Arthritis, Kidneys & Urinary Tract, Gastrointestinal Tract, Locomotor system, Skin, Cardiovascular System, Hemorrhage, Flu, Rheumatism, Gout, and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia BPH. I make my own blends that I use to sooth my stomach and Nettle is one of the main ingredients, along with Coltsfoot. This stuff is very affordable, and In my opnion, it works great! It's doesn't taste bad either, resembling regular tea. I use it in different forms depending on how lazy I am really.. I'll "toss and wash" it, or make it into a tea. If I'm really sick, I just use a tincture while I'm waiting on my tea to brew. To learn much more about Nettle Leaf, click here.


Nutmeg
Nutmeg Whole

Many people are unaware of this, but Nutmeg is actually believed to be an oneirogen ( dream inducing plant).(Devereux, Devereux 1998 56) This is one of the main factors that sparked my interest in it. The typical Nutmeg you buy at the grocery store is rather low quality. The good stuff usually comes in the form of a whole nut, and if its covered with the exterior which is mace, it's probably even better. The mace is easily removed, just place it in warm water and it will pop right off. If you're shocked to find out that Mace comes from the Nutmeg, then you're not alone. It also shares some of the same phytochemical constituents as Sassafras, specifically the "safrole" constituent(s). I find it very relaxing before sleep. I don't think you should take it every single day tho but I'm not a Doctor. There's much more to it than this, and you can learn more about Nutmeg in herbalism here.


Nymphaea caerulea - Blue Lotus
Nymphaea caerulea Lotus Flower

Nymphaea caerulea is an aphrodisiac and also thought to be an intoxicating flower. It's thought to be depicted in ancient Egyptian heirloglyphics as well. It's prized by the Bhuddist and utilized in meditation practices. There used to be pharmaceutical vendors on the internet that sold its pure extracts, but I'm not sure if they are still around. It's active constituents are listed on pubchem and other academic resources on the internet. Isn't it interested that the scientific name Nymphaea has "nymph" in it, as in nympho? I honestly believe that this had something to do with the choosing of the name. After all, scientist name these chemicals.
