Mrs. Grieve, in A Modern Herbal says this about Nettle:
"It is the formic acid in the Nettle, with the phosphates and a trace of iron, which constitute it such a valuable food medicinally." She continues "Preparations of the herb have astringent properties and act also as a stimulating tonic. Nettle is anti-asthmatic: the juice of the roots or leaves, mixed with honey or sugar, will relieve bronchial and asthmatic troubles and the dried leaves, burnt and inhaled, will have the same effect." Mrs. Grieve further states "The seeds have also been used in consumption, the infusion of herb or seeds being taken in wineglassful given in wine as a remedy for ague. The powdered seeds have been considered a cure for goiter and efficacious in reducing excessive corpulency. "In Holland, and also in Egypt, it is said that horse-dealers mix the seeds of Nettles with oats or other food, in order to give the animals a sleek coat. "Although in Britain upwards of thirty insects feed solely on the Nettle plant, flies have a distaste for the plant, and a fresh bunch of Stinging Nettles will keep a larder free from them."
