Urtica, or as it is more commonly known, 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 leaves and roots of Urtica plants are carefully harvested and manufactured twice yearly into a tincture.
Alfred Vogel was a Swiss pioneer of natural health. Throughout his life, he championed the use of natural remedies in healthcare. Love of nature and the belief in its healing powers were at the heart of his work, and his legacy lives on in the range of herbal remedies which bear his name.
A Vogel is based on one of the core principles of Alfred Vogel - that health requires a holistic approach. A balanced lifestyle, a healthy diet and natural healing products play key roles in maintaining and restoring health.
Alfred Vogel made his preparations from freshly picked plants. The extra effort put into using fresh produce is what still distinguishes A Vogel from its competitors today. A Vogel products are manufactured using methods that are as close to nature as possible, using a sustainable approach to natural resources.
