Okay, I voted! By absentee ballot online, for my state of Montana, while I’m here in Ecuador! And you can, too, at FVAP.gov, and follow the instructions for your State.
Also known as Stinging Nettle – I used to serve this to my kids for their allergies. It’s know as Ortiga here – used for bleeding, gingivitis, hay fever, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Diabetes, Anemia, Circulation and Anemia!
1 pot water
1 tsp. ortiga
Directions: Put a teaspoon of the fresh or dried herb in a cup, and pour almost boiling water over it. Let steep for twenty minutes.
Word of the Day – votar – to vote
Tip of the Day – It’s pretty calm-tasting. You can mix it with another herb to help you sleep,(valerian) or calm down, (chamomile) or wake you up! (guayusa)
