Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle) powder is made from a plant growing wild in forest areas. Like dandelion, this could be mistaken for a weed unless you know its amazing properties – it is a great health boosting herb. Its health benefits have been well-known to Nepali people for many years. Nettle powder is very popular product from our micro entrepreneurs.
A local authority noted: “People have been using stinging nettle for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anaemia in Nepal. Many people these days use it to treat urinary problems as well. Regular consumption of boiled nettle is also said to reduce chances of night blindness and to strengthen the immune system.”
There are many areas of high quality nettles in forested areas in Nepal. Micro entrepreneurs have been trained and supported to collect the nettle plants, then to dry and grind the dried leaves into powder.
