Nettle thrives in woodlands and shady areas throughout Europe and eastern North America. It is also called stinging nettle because the leaves are lined with stinging hairs that inject histamine into the skin when handled or brushed against. The herb is highly nutritious and it’s medicinal use can be traced back to the ancient world.

Cut and sifted Nettle leaf is commonly used in herbal tea blends, although it is also frequently encapsulated or tinctured.

Nettle is also called stinging nettle because of the tiny hairs that project from the perimeter of the fresh leaf that “sting” the skin on contact. When cooked or dried, however, these stingers fall to the wayside.

Nettle also supplies a fiber from which a linen-type of cloth is produced. In fact, during World War II, when supplies of cotton were scarce, German soldiers wore uniforms made from nettle.
