We always use burdock to reduce the stinging effect of nettles.  Burdock seems to grow near nettles, so it is usually available.  Just pick a leaf or two, crush it, maybe chew it a little, and then rub the area of skin affected by nettles.

Donna - I am trying to learn biodynamics and also have planted a lovely bed
of nettles (one of the ingredients for Rudolf Steiners preps) and have heard
over and over how wonderful they are for tea and cooking, etc. Would you
mind sharing what you use them for? They really make a handsome patch,
though every errant brush-up with them turns into a half-day memorandum for
me.  dylan
