Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology

Extracts of nettle have been included in hair tonics for centuries due to its purported ability to stimulate hair growth. Like many bitter herbs, nettle is a blood purifier. Its long list of traditional uses can be summed up in its ability to increase the production of urine, its mild laxative effect and its ability to increase the efficiency of liver and kidney function.


Excerpts from Practical Herbalism

It is one of the wild plants still gathered each spring in rural regions as a "spring tonic" and pot-herb. It makes a healthy and very nutritious vegetable, which is cleansing and easy to digest. An old country remedy for chronic rheumatism and arthritis is "Urtication" or flogging with nettles. Some folks even keep a nettle plant growing on a sunny windowsill, so that the healing stings might be applied throughout the winter.

It is a strange fact that the juice of the nettle proves an antidote for its own sting, and being applied will afford instant relief. The sting of a nettle may also be cured by rubbing the part with dock, rosemary, peppermint or sage leaves, as well as those of comfrey, plantain, or jewelweed, which can often be found growing alongside nettles.

Primary Constituents:

Chlorophyll, in high yields... Nettles are a significant source of vitamin C and vitamin A, bio-available minerals, including calcium, silicon, and potassium chloride; protein, and dietary fiber.


From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • As a powder, we use Nettle in tincture combinations and capsules. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. Except as a tea, as powders are not normally used in tea combinations.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, Nettle should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

Nettle Powder
by Marybelle Harris on Jan 11, 2013

I use Nettle powder for my allergies. I live in the midwest, and I have terrible allergies spring through fall. During these seasons I use to take Benadryl every night just so I could breathe. Once I started taking my homemade Nettle capsules, I was off of the Benadryl in about 3 weeks. Nettle opens up my breathing passages and allows my sinus's to drain. The one side affect I noticed is it can make me a little bit wired (like caffiene). So I try to take Nettle earlier in the day.

Nettle Powder as Tea
by Thomas Edmonds on Jan 1, 2013

I think it is fine as a tea. I don't strain it, but consume the powder. Perhaps drink in green or black tea with lemon. Or, just plain. I really like it; especially when I think about how good it is for me!

I am so glad to have found your website. I have wanted to start using herbs for a long time, but haven't known where to start. I love how much information you have on your website! I also really appreciate the Youtube videos, especially about the smoothies. I decided to start out with the Daily Boost mix, and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can start having delicious, healthy smoothies for breakfast! It is time I turned my diet around and started consuming healthier foods, and your store is helping me to do that.

Keep up the good work!
