Urticaria Dioica.... In the wild. Those spikes are filled with formic acid that ...
... is SHOCKING to the touch. A most memorable sensation, akin to a sting, they say. And how it got its common name "Stinging Nettle".
To me it is more like an electric shock. It is sudden. More sudden than a sting.
The after effect is this fascinating numb tingly thing in my fingers. I've got it going on right now and it is divine!!!! Nettle Bizzy Bliss!!
