Kutumbaka (कुतुम्बक) is a Sanskrit word referring to Lamium album (white nettle), from the Lamiaceae family. Certain plant parts of Kutumbaka are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Ayurvedic work. The plant is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”.
