Urtica urens tincture is a herbal remedy made from the stinging nettle plant, scientifically known as Urtica urens.  It is commonly used in alternative medicine for various health conditions due to its potential therapeutic properties.

The stinging nettle plant has a long history of medicinal use dating back centuries. It is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa but can now be found in temperate regions worldwide. The plant is characterized by its serrated leaves and tiny hairs that release irritating chemicals when touched, causing a stinging sensation on the skin.

Urtica urens tincture is believed to possess anti-inflammatory, diuretic, analgesic, and antihistamine properties. These properties are attributed to the presence of various bioactive compounds such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, lignans, and polysaccharides found in the plant.

One of the primary uses of Urtica urens tincture is for allergic conditions such as hay fever and allergic rhinitis. It is believed to help reduce symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and nasal congestion by inhibiting the release of histamine and other inflammatory mediators in the body. Some studies have shown promising results in this regard, although more research is needed to confirm its effectiveness.

Furthermore, Urtica urens tincture may also be used topically for skin conditions like eczema, hives, and insect bites. The anti-inflammatory properties of the tincture are thought to help alleviate itching and redness associated with these conditions. However, it is important to note that individual responses may vary, and consulting with a healthcare professional is recommended before using any herbal remedy.

In addition to its anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effects, Urtica urens tincture is also believed to have diuretic properties. This means that it may help increase urine production and promote the elimination of waste products from the body. Some people use it as a natural remedy for conditions like urinary tract infections, edema, and kidney stones. However, more scientific evidence is needed to support these claims.

The tincture can be taken orally by diluting it in water or applied topically to the affected area. It is generally considered safe when used as directed, but some individuals may experience mild side effects such as stomach upset or skin irritation.  
Tinctures are diluted with water before consumption (with varying amounts of tincture ranging from as low as 5, 10 to as much as 20, 30 drops). 

Please note that the dosage amount will vary from person to person based on age, the severity of the condition, and other factors.  Please consult with your practitioner on dosage and duration.  Tinctures are generally not added to blank pellets.
