It’s fibres have been used for centuries to make shrouds, sailcloth, sacking, cordage and fishing nets. During WWI it was used as a cotton substitute in German Uniforms. As well as fibre it is used as a dye, due to it’s rich source of chlorophyll it has a beautiful green which is used with fabric, foods and soap making. Roman soldiers were believed to beat themselves with Nettle to encourage surface blood circulation so they would stay warm in the freezing temperatures in Britain.

In Germany Nettle Root has been traditionally used for the treatment of inflammations of the urinary tract, for the prevention of urinary lithiasis and for the treatment of BPH. Nettle Root has shown in studies to increase urine flow, B.P.H., ejaculation and impotence especially when combined with Saw Palmetto. The root has also been used to treat chronic skin eruptions and bowel disorders. A double-blind placebo-controlled trial investigated the efficacy of nettle root in the long-term treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. International prostatic symptom score (IPSS) was significantly decreased after nettle root treatment unlike those treated with placebo. (IPSS quantitatively assesses the severity of lower urinary tract symptoms: decreased force of stream, intermittency, incomplete emptying, straining; and the impact of storage symptoms: frequency, urgency, nocturia.) There were fewer urinary infections and adverse effects in the nettle root group.
