Brief Introduction: This flowering perennial populates wastelands in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Medicinal preparations made from the leaves, stems, and roots of nettle are used both internally and externally. Some of the information for nettle also applies to the small stinging nettle Urtica urens, and hybrids thereof. It is used for controlling female discomforts such as heavy menstrual periods and vaginal infections and boosting milk output in nursing mothers, as a hay fever remedy, diuretic, and for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH). Nettle lotions and teas are used to stop bleeding, help wounds heal, encourage hair growth, and lessen nerve pains and rheumatic aches.
