Nettle is considered to be one included in the 9 herbs charm and is an ancient herb of protection and healing. As most of us are aware, in nature these plants have little hairs that cause irritation when brushed, hence the reputation for being a protective hedge plant.
Associated with the element of fire, planet Mars, signs Scorpio (and some say Aries). A masculine energy herb, think of Horus, Cernunnos, Thor and Hades. Magickal use for protection and dispelling and warding off energies; so a good defensive herb, reversal of hexes, curses and jinx breaking. It has other uses in magickal workings such as healing, averting danger and winning arguments!
Comes in half ounce bags (14g).
