The humble nettle –

Common nettle weeds are frequently overlooked for their therapeutic values, mainly because of their nasty sting. Yet this common weed is said to relieve joint points and improve skin irritations such as acne and eczema.

In medieval Europe Stinging nettles were used as a diuretic (to rid the body of excess water) and to treat joint pain. Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles, joints, eczema, arthritis, gout and anemia.

According to Nicolas Culpeper in the seventeenth century, the seeds of the nettle were thought to be beneficial in the treatment of bites from ‘mad dogs’ or the stinging of ‘venomous creatures.’ Seeds were also used at that time as an antidote to poisonous herbs such as nightshade and henbane. In early America, medicine, bandages soaked in a leaf and stem infusion were used to stop the bleeding of wounds.
