Nettle is a widespread plant known for the stinging hairs that grows on his leaves. Nettles are used in potion-making: fresh nettles are used in the Boil-Cure Potion,  whereas dried nettles are used in the Herbicide Potion.  Nettles are presumably the main ingredients of beverages like Nettle wine and Nettle tea.
Behind the scenes
- Nettle may refer to several species of plants of the genus Urtica in the Urticanceae family. Historically, healing properties were attributed to nettle, and it was included in the Nine Herbs Charm of the Anglo-Saxons.
