The stinging nettle is part of a genus of about 45 plants and it is widespread worldwide. Nettles grow almost anywhere, apart from tropical and arctic regions. They enjoy cultivated, nitrogen-rich soil and thrive in slightly moist conditions in full sun or partial shade. Nettle absolute is created by extracting a concrete from the Urtica urens plant. This concrete is then further distilled using ethanol. Nettle infusion can be made by adding boiling water to dried leaves before straining the mixture and allowing it to cool.
