Nettles (Urtica dioica): The Northeast's most underrated superfood, Nettles, or 'Stinging Nettles', are an incredible plant-based source of protein, minerals, vitamins, antioxidant flavonoids, and other essential nutrients. The fresh leaves may be helpful in soothing allergy symptoms when infused in vinegars or alcohol tinctures. Many know this plant for its stinging qualities when accidentially brushed with the bare skin!
Milky Oats (Avena sativa): The dried tops of unripe oats in the "milky" stage. Known as food for the nervous system, Milky Oat tops are powerful allies for protecting and restoring damaged neurons, soothing frazzled nerves, and supporting convalescence. Milky Oats are also deeply nutritive and rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and several trace minerals.

It’s rather delightful in both medicinal and culinary pursuits. As any good mint, apple mint is a great herb for digestive complaints and is rich in aromatcs. It has even been used as a traditional strewing herb, meaning it is cast upon the floor to cleanse the air and keep unwanted energies (and perhaps pests!) away.
