Using Bulk Nettle Seed
The best way to use your bulk whole nettle seeds is to grind them (I.e. with an electric coffee grinder or a similar device) before ingesting them or tincturing them. The reason being, the seeds are tiny and relatively slick and will go right thru you unless you chew them very carefully and thoroughly. If they go straight thru, you will not gain much benefit from them. Make sure to store the ground up seeds in your refrigerator as the seed oils are now exposed.
If you plan to tincture the nettle seeds, grind them just prior to macerating (tincturing) them. You will get considerably more liquid out of a ground up seed batch compared to a whole seed batch.
