Thank you for your question. The cream is not potentized, but made from the mother tincture of Urtica urens. In that sense it is an herbal product.
I recommend using it according to the homeopathic principle of let likes cure likes. We match the symptoms of the cream or remedy to a patient with similar symptoms.
I hope this answer helps.
Wishing you health and happiness,

The cream says it’s has 12.5% Urtica Urens tincture. How is that homeopathic ? Or is it herbal cream ? I am looking for herbal cream. Thank you

Almost unbelievable results for hives! I have had this remedy for 2 years or more. I used it for a bee sting that led to major swelling on my daughter’s foot and it brought about rapid relief. Today I woke up with itchy skin. I did dry skin brushing then took a warm shower and washed with mild soap. To my surprise, hives started breaking out all over my body. They were tremendously itchy, particularly on my right hand, thighs and arms. I even had hives around my eyes! I applied the cream to every welt that I could see. Soon after, maybe 25 minutes or so, I noticed the welts were less itchy and flattening out, and instead of just being blanched bumps they were surrounded by red. About an hour later, the itching was almost gone and to my shock, the welts and redness were nearly gone too. Several hours later it’s like nothing even happened. I had this condition once in the past and it lasted days, despite using prescription topical steroids. Simply amazing!

I had multiple bleeding hemorrhoids that I treated with Infrared photocoagulation over 10 years ago. This is a medical procedure used to treat internal hemorrhoids. The doctor uses a device that creates an intense beam of infrared light. Heat created by the infrared light ( burns the hemorrhoid) causes scar tissue, which cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. The hemorrhoid dies, and a scar forms on the wall of the anal canal. The scar tissue holds nearby veins in place so they don’t bulge into the anal canal. Over the past years I had pain and spasms from that procedure. About a month ago I tried hypericum cream that did not seem to help. When I read the a Urtica Urens article I realized it was a burn remedy and may heal my hemorrhoids. I tried it and the next day the spasms stopped and rectal pain is gone. Thank you Deborah for the homeopathic creams and articles explaining how they work and what they do.
I have known for years that homeopathic Urtica Urens is a fantastic burn remedy and a MUST HAVE for every kitchen. I have used it and shared it countless times for many different kinds of burns in cream and in pill form. Yesterday I burned my tongue and my lips quite badly tasting a soup that was much hotter than I had expected. I did not want to take an internal dose of Urtica Urens because I had just taken a homeopathic remedy and did not want to risk interrupting its action. The burn in my mouth was very painful and I was sure that it would last a few days so I decided to try putting Urtica Urens cream directly on my tongue and on the inside of my lips. I covered the area with cream and kept my mouth open for about 10 minutes allowing it to soak. I was surprised that there was no strange taste or discomfort from the cream and I even swallowed a bit with no problem. Within 20 minutes the pain was at about 50% of what it had been before that creme and within about 2 hours the burn feeling was completely gone! I was eating hot soup that evening with no problem! Thrilled to have an effective and gentle treatment to use for burns that can even go inside the mouth if needed! NO KITCHEN SHOULD BE WITHOUT THIS CREAM!
The Urtica urens cream is great. Have had problem with crotch itching for years. Now I’ve found something that really works.
I ordered a twelve pack of Hypericum Perforatum Cream for the nerve pain in my hands and feet and received a jar of Urtica Urens Cream as a bonus for ordering the twelve pack. I put the the jar in the closet with the rest of them and forgot about it completely until I burned my thumb and third finger and hubby said” what about that cream you bought” ? He brought me the jar of Urtica Urens instead of the Hypericum I was expecting. I got on the old computer and checked your site for what to use for burns and lo and behold it was in my hand !!! I applied the UU cream 5 or six times a day to the blister on my thumb (blister had not broken open) and it simply over the course of a week DRIED up. The Blister on my third finger had broken open and the skin was loose . I cut the loose skin off and applied UU and covered loosely with a bandaid. It took 2 and 1/2 weeks for that one to heal because the burn went down to the meat/nerves of my finger.
Since I have neuropathy in my hands the slightest bump sends me in to “Pain Land” that can last for hours.
I just love the results of the Urtica Urens Cream and the Hypericum Perforatum keeps my neuropathy pain in check.
Thank you Deborah very much for your wonderful creams, they truly work wonders .
P.S. I also love the way your creams make my hands look twenty years younger, and as soft as a petal.

Unfortuately I had a chance to use the Urtica Urens Cream a few days ago when 375 degree oil splashed onto my fingers. Yahoo, that hurt. Fortunately I had ordered the Urtica Cream as part of the variety pack some time ago. I could not get to the cold water to run over the fingers right away, but did it as soon as I could. Then I applied the cream. It took a few minutes but the pain went away. I kept doing the cold water for a few minutes at a time and applying the cream through out the day. By the end of the day, there was a good size blister coming up on one of the fingers. That night I put on the cream and covered it lightly with a bandage the the cream would not rub off in the night.
To my surprise the next morning, the blister had disappeared, the redness was gone and it did not hurt at all. I could put my hands in hot dish water and there was no bother. There was one tiny spot I missed putting the cream on and that was red and sore. So it showed me the cream worked really well and provided a deep healing.
Once again, thank you for making these creams.
My husband and I are very very impressed with your creams. My homeopath had recommended Urtica Urens cream for cracked skin on the fingers, which I get in the cold weather. I found your site, and ordered the cream. I have never had any problems with the cracked skin since. Besides it works wonders with burns as well. I have given a few pots away to others who suffered the same condition with the cold weather cracks and they also report great success with the cream.
I have been using the Ruta Graveolens for my shoulder that has been suffering from tuning pianos (repetitive motion) which also unfortunately has affected my harpsichord playing. The Ruta Graveolens seems to be giving me some relief.
My husband has used the Calendula cream for a rash that wouldn’t go away. After putting your Calendula cream on for 3 days, the rash started to disappear!
Same great feed-back for the Arnica: we have never used any other Arnica cream that was so powerful!
Thank you very very much for the great products you have given us!
Wishing you the very best!

Today I was cooking a pot of chicken soup for my son. As I was trying to tear off pieces of the chicken to put them into the soup, my hand slipped and went into the pot of soup. I burnt my index and middle finger. I applied the Urtica urens cream that I keep in a jar in a kitchen cabinet. For about two minutes after I applied the cream I had strong pain in the fingers and then the pain rapidly subsided. By the third minute the pain was 95% better and I could continue on with my plans for the day. I was concerned that I would need to take Cantharis 12C or 30C in addition to the Urtica urens, but the Urtica urens was sufficient. First Aid Creams Company is my company, so I shouldn’t be writing the review, but this was such a heart and finger warming experience for me to see how quickly the cream works in an emergency situation. After about ten minutes the pain was totally gone. About half hour after I burnt my hand, I needed to run an errand. When I put my hand on the hot steering wheel the pain came back to about 20% intensity for about five minutes. Then the pain subsided again. All I needed was one application of the Urtica urens cream.
