Nettle is an ancient fiber that protects, fortifies and nurtures the spirit. The Nepalese villagers revere the fiber for its anti-histamine properties.
Botanically dyed with Madder Root (Rubia tinctorum), this ruby red hue serves as a doctrine of signatures demonstrating the root’s use as a blood remedy. In chromotherapy, red is used to bring warmth, energy and stimulation to the system, thus being supportive with low energy, fatigue, and colds. Red also energizes heart and blood circulation, builds up the blood and heightens a low blood pressure. It enlivens all organs and the senses hearing, smell, taste, vision and touch. Increases sexual desire and activity.
