Purple dead nettle, also known as red deadnettle, purple archangel, and Lamium purpureum, is a member of the mint family. Like other well-known species in this group, this plant has a square stem and triangular-shaped leaves. Unlike common mint, however, deadnettle doesn’t have that telltale minty flavor or smell. 

The name comes from the resemblance of the leaves to those on stinging nettle plants. Because this weed lacks the irritating chemicals of a true stinging nettle, it has been dubbed “dead” nettle.

The benefits of purple dead nettle can be utilized internally as well as topically. For hundreds of years, people have been using this plant to create salves, tinctures, and teas to help a variety of ailments.

This ancient plant has a lot of folklore and myths surrounding it. It has long been used in magical ceremonies to bring feelings of happiness, security, and grounding to the user. Just as this early-blooming plant overcomes obstacles with ease, it is said to offer the same power to those who wield it.
