Product Description



Urtica dioica, often called common nettle, stinging nettle or nettle leaf, is a herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the family Urticaceae. It is native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa, and North America, and introduced elsewhere.

Urtica dioica is a dioecious, herbaceous, perennial plant, 1 to 2 m tall in the summer and dying down to the ground in winter.

In Europe, nettles have a strong association with human habitation and buildings. The presence of nettles may indicate the site of a long-abandoned building. Human and animal waste may be responsible for elevated levels of phosphate and nitrogen in the soil, providing an ideal environment for nettles.

The plant has a long history of use as a source for traditional medicine, food, and tea.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Anti-Cancer - In studies, the herb has shown positive results against some types of cancer, including prostate cancer.

Antihistamine - Stinging nettle contains natural antihistamines and anti-inflammatories (including quercetin), that open up constricted bronchial and nasal passages, helping to ease hay fever, and nose & sinus type allergy symptoms.

Anti-Inflammatory - Nettle Leaf is best known for its ability to ease the pain in the muscles and joints caused by arthritis and gout due to the anti-inflammatory effects of the herb. It can also be used to treat respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis because of the anti-inflammatory actions.

Digestive Restorative - Nettle leaf can be used forhealing stomach and intestinal ulcers; nourishing the mucus membrane of the intestinal tract; relieving constipation; eliminating or reducing diarrhoea; restoring tone to digestive system veins so haemorrhoids shrink; and clearing some intestinal infections.

Depurative - Nettle is a superb nourisher of the kidneys and adrenals.

High Blood Pressure - While fresh stinging nettle helps stop bleeding, dried stinging nettle has little vitamin K and is used as a blood thinner, making it useful herb against high blood pressure.

Topical Uses - Externally it has been used to improve the appearance of the hair (give it shine), and is said to be a remedy against oily hair and dandruff.
