Comments: Could not use the powder for what the website said I could use it for I needed to infuse it with oil that was not going to work it was a horrible mess.

FNWL Response: Hi Patricia, experimentation can be necessary when formulating with natural ingredients. We do offer Stringing Nettles Powder in a smaller size -- when working with new ingredients, we do strongly encourage purchasing the smallest size for testing and experimentation. This helps to ensure that the ingredient is suitable for your specific application. Sometimes the right equipment/strainer can also make a huge difference in the resulting infused oil. If you have any questions, we'd love to warmly encourage you to please reach out to for product assistance.

Comments: I receive requests for this herb in CP soaps. The color lasts for months. There is a slight herbal aroma. To mask it, I use a strong EO such as lemongrass or peppermint.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
