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

Diuretic - Nettle root helps reduce water retention, stop bleeding and encourage the passage of kidney stones and gravel from the urinary tract. It can also be used to relieve dropsy symptoms (as well as helping to prevent incipient dropsy), reduce urethral swelling/urethritis and prostate swelling/prostatitis, and helps eliminate chronic cystitis.

Topical Uses - Nettle root can be helpful to those with thinning hair, dandruff, scalp infections, and hair loss after chemotherapy.
