Urtica dioica is abundant in northern Europe and much of Asia, usually found in the countryside. It is less widespread in southern Europe and north Africa, where it is restricted by its need for moist soil, but is still common. In North America, it is widely distributed in Canada and the USA, where it is found in every province and state except for Hawaii and also can be found in northernmost Mexico. It grows in abundance in the Pacific North West, especially in places where annual rainfall is high. The European subspecies has been introduced into North America and South America.
This rare and extremely hard to find absolute is a natural material produced in France from the roots of stinging nettles. The oil is solvent extracted to get the truest representation of the plant. If cold the absolute needs to be warmed gently before use and is a viscous but pourable liquid.
It has a clean fragrant, herb like scent which is reminiscent of summer flower meadows . A must have for blenders and perfumers who like to experiment with new and exciting aromas or to create a new nature inspired cosmetic preparation.
