Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris) is a perennial of the Mint family. It can be found at low and middle elevations in June, often seen as a purplish ground cover in lawns and clearings. Traditionally, the plant has been widely used for healing purposes by native peoples. The Quinault and Quileute indians were known to put the leaves on cuts and skin inflammations.
Stinging nettle grows abundantly in North America, Europe and Asia, usually in rural habitats where moist soils are prevalent. All parts of the plant—stems, leaves, flowers, seeds, and roots—offer numerous health benefits ranging from arthritis relief to more luxurious hair.
