Urtica dioica

Stinging Nettles

Urtica dioica

This herb is one I'm very familiar with.

I've used it in a personal tea blend since I was a teenager.

I'm just crazy enough that I actually went and did an afternoon's work putting in a garden for someone else in exchange for a start of it for my garden.

It's a favorite in both the kitchen and the cosmetic cabinet.

It is a staple in the leech's bag and the stillroom for very good reason.

And with equal amounts of patience, perseverance, and hard work, you can make a fine cloak out of it.
