This plant was thought to be heavily used by country folk in medicinal remedies and thought to prevent you being struck by lightning if a small amount was always carried. It was also once believed that you could help a sick relative to recover if you 'grasped the nettle' by the stem and pulled out the root whilst reciting the name of the ill person, or the parents.
