General description and domicile:
Urtica Urens - the Lesser Nettle is used in homeopathy as opposed to Urtica dioica - the Greater Nettle which is used in herbal remedies. It is a robust plant, known by most, that grows virtually all over the world.
Contact with this nettle inevitably results in an irritated, painful rash as a result of the injection of a liquid stored in small cells in the base of the many hair-like spines on the leaf of the plant. The sap of the plant is an antidote for nettle rash, which makes it one of the very few things that produces both toxin and antidote in the same vessel.

Warning: Extreme care must be taken when handling this plant as very little contact with it will result in an irritating and painful rash.

Part used and extraction:
All of the plant is used, harvested in the flowering season.

Remedy preparation:
Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

History:
The fiber of the nettle was once used to make linen cloth and was regarded by many as being superior to hemp and flax. This practice continued into the 19th century.
