Special Herbs, Vol. 3 is an album of instrumental works released by MF Doom under the Metal Fingers moniker, the third release in his Special Herbs series. Following the pattern set by previous installments of the series, each track is named after a herb or similar flora.

Owing to differences in record labels and overlaps in track listings, this album also makes up the first part of the next installment in the series, Special Herbs, Vol. 4.
