Stinging Nettle (Urtica drops) has been used traditionally as a therapeutic herb for a myriad of health complaints ranging from the more serious to improving the appearance and quality of hair.
Stinging Nettle, has a well-known reputation for its sting when the skin touches the hairs and bristles on the leaves and stems. The name Urtica comes from the Latin verb urere, meaning 'to burn’.
Interestingly when the fine hairs on the Urtica plant come into contact with a painful area of the body they can actually cause a decrease in the original pain! Alfred Vogel was one who advocated this treatment to a number of his patients
Today A.Vogel is kinder and the aerial parts of Urtica plants are carefully harvested and manufactured twice yearly into a tincture

A Vogel is one of the oldest Herbal Medicine companies, with strong traditions upheld in this modern day herbal company. Started by Alfred Vogel, Alfred was fascinated by nature and herbs. Taught by his father and grandmother he soon acquired a deep respect for the wonders of the natural world. His research led him to spend time amongst indigenous people and to investigate how and why the modern day diseases of civilisation were absent from primitive peoples lives.
This led him to study diet, lifestyle and the remedies these people used. Alfred Vogel led a healthy life and was a skiier until well into his 90s. He died at the age of 94.
The company A.Vogel take science seriously and stand out amongst herbal companies. They have always adopted organic standards and adhere to the stringent standards set out by the Union of Swiss Biological Agricultural Organisations, the Swiss equivalent of the Soil Association. They never test on animals. Vogel said 'I esteem life as sacred'. They believe in a very holistic approach and that everything in the herb should be left as nature designed it, thus choosing to work with the whole plant as much as possible. They also work to GMP standards (Good Manufacturing Practice).
