What’s on with the herb “cat’s whiskers” that it can treat kidney ailments?
My another question is that when making an I.P is it necessary to give a background to the herb like it’s medicinal uses or it’s a big no no..
Answer by J T
What exactly is an I.P ?
I’m unaware of any herb being called “cat’s whiskers”
What is it’s Botanical name? Always go by botanical name; common names are usually just made up to sound interesting… such as Cats Claw… which is meant for immune conditions.. yet for all intents and purposes is a completely useless herb.
Urtica Dioca (Stinging Nettle) is an excellent herb for clearing out metabolic wastes in the kidneys.
Try having 2 teaspoons of dried aerial parts per cup of boiling water & steeping for 10 minutes.
3X a day is a good way to start.
