Nearly 3,000 years ago, people living in the area of Denmark used cloth made from nettle to wrap their deceased relatives. Much more recently, nettle fiber was used in the making of uniforms for German soldiers during World War I. Today it grows all over the globe, even in remote places like Hawaii, Taiwan and the Canary Islands. Apparently, nettle fans brought their crop with them wherever they went. Interestingly, the medical term urticaria (commonly called hives) is a close derivative of the Latin name for nettle, Urtica dioica. Interestingly, the nettle plant can help alleviate the very skin reaction it causes. Making a tea of nettle root to wash irritated skin can offer immense relief to the affected area.
