Stinging Nettle known formerly as Urtica dioica, grows as a tall perennial plant with green flowers and lance-shaped leaves with yellow stamens, and is cultivated around the world. The shoots are harvested in spring, often for culinary purposes as a vegetable and for it’s medicinal purposes as a strong tonic. The roots are harvested in the autumn, while the aerial parts of the plant are harvested in the summer.1,2
During the 1st Century AD, the leaves were chopped and used as a bandage for skin wounds, while the juice was used to assist with nosebleeds.  In addition, the leaves of the plant were cooked and mixed with myrrh to assist with stimulating the female menstrual cycle.1

Nettle is known to assist with reducing and slowing bleeding, and is an excellent herb to be used in conditions such as in nosebleeds and heavy menstrual cycles.
