Nettle is an ancient fiber that protects, fortifies and nurtures the spirit. The Nepalese villagers revere the fiber for its anti-histamine properties.
This beautiful sunny hue hails from Weld (Reseda luteola), and helps strengthen the nerves and the mind. Many plants that have yellow roots or dyes are used for conditions of the stomach, liver, and intestines.
Yellow helps awaken mental inspiration and stimulates higher mentality and cheers up depressed or melancholic people. Thus, it is an excellent color for nervous or nerve-related conditions or ailments. It also energizes the muscles. Esoterically, it links with and stimulates the solar plexus, or psychic center. It can be used for psychic burnout or other psychic-related conditions or ailments.
