Stinging Nettle is a powerful anti-inflammatory which is used topically to ease arthritis aches, joint and muscle pains, bug bites and even seasonal allergies. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants Nettle is truly a wonderful plant.

Made from soft 100% raw silk and hand dyed by me using Nettle harvested from my yard.

This long slow process of infusing herbs into fabric allows the qualities of the plant to bond with the fabric, thereby embracing its medicinal qualities. Wiping your nose or brow with this special hankie is a way to ingest herbs through your biggest organ...your skin!

Silk is well known for its healing and antibacterial properties. Wearing raw silk can be very soothing and it naturally wicks wetness away from your body keeping you dry and comfortable.

This may just be the greatest hankie ever made...well it’s definitely special. Each one is unique and one of a kind.

This soft hankie is free from all the harmful chemicals used in commercial dyeing.

Size: 9”x9”
