Wild Harvested Nettle for cosmetic use, hand picked and processed from our Little Woodcote Estate Farm
Our nettles are allowed to grow in certain areas wildly across in our field.
Growing in amongst wildflower and self colonising in many areas, the wild Nettle encourgaes caterpillars and is an important food for butterfliers. We harvest responsibly to ensure continual supply for our butterfly population during the summer.
Harvested by Hand
We harvest our Nettles by hand to ensure the purity of our Nettle extract.
As our Nettles are wildharvested it is important to ensure it is only Nettle that makes it into our extract.
After harvesting, we hand sort the leaves to ensure quality.
Chemical Free Extraction
We extract our Cosmetic Nettle extract at High Pressure in Organic Glycerine.
This processing method not only maintains purity, but makes the cosmetic nettle extract easy to add to product formulations without additional ingredients.
