Nettles

Because its leaves often irritate the skin upon contact, nettle has gained a bad reputation among many garden owners. It is an important medicinal plant with many health effects. It was very popular even in the Middle Ages and is highly valued in almost all important works on herbalism. As early as the 12th century, Hildegard von Bingen used the purple juice of nettle, for the external treatment of vascular inflammation. She also used it to treat wounds and injuries.

Its amazing, positive effect on hair and scalp was not discovered by biologists and scientists, but was discovered by horse traders. In the past, nettle seeds were mixed with feed, thus achieving a beneficial effect on animal hair. From this, a completely new approach has developed, which is the basis of today's use in hair care. Due to their nutrients, medicinal plants have long been used as a home remedy for hair loss. It stimulates the circulation of the scalp, nourishes the hair roots and helps prevent fat on the hair.

From the seeds, leaves and roots of nettle, you can make tea or other tinctures. Nettle tea has a detoxifying and diuretic effect. It is also effective in joint pain and against rheumatism.

Alkmene uses this medicinal plant in its products for optimal skin and hair care. Advanced formulas contain organic nettle extract and other quality ingredients.
