DESCRIPTION

Stinging nettles are native to Europe, but are now found worldwide. Stinging nettles are named after the hollow stinging hairs, called trichomes, found on the leaves of the plant. These hairs act like hypodermic needles by injecting histamine and other chemicals upon contact, resulting in the characterising stinging sensation. Stinging nettles have a variety of uses in the food, drink and medical industries and were even used as textile raw materials in ancient societies.
