Nourishing Nettle Tea

Nettle tea will feed your body…

The most important health benefits of stinging nettle include its ability to detoxify the body, improve metabolic efficiency, boost immunity, increase circulation, improve energy levels, manage menstruation, minimize menopausal symptoms, and aid in skin care. It has the power to protect the health of the kidney and gallbladder, lower inflammation, increase muscle mass, regulate hormonal activity, lower blood pressure, soothe hemorrhoids, and improve respiratory conditions.

Nettle tea is a delicious and beneficial beverage that helps boost the immune system, relieve pain and inflammation, protect the heart and optimize digestion. Nettle tea can be quite a strong beverage, and has a rapid effect on the body, primarily due to the flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals found in the plant.

To make a 3 day supply: Add 1 cup or 1 oz. dried nettle leaves in quart jar. Fill with boiling water, stir, and fill to the top with boiling water. Infuse for 24 hours for maximum benefits and taste. After infusion cools, place in refrigerator. After 24 hours, strain out herbs and squeeze out liquid. Store in refrigerator up to three days. You will have to increase this amount as you increase your intake.

Enjoy a cold drink everyday. To start with, drink 1/4 cup each morning, and slowly increase over months to up to 8 oz. If you feel shaky, you need to reduce the amount you drink. Start your new batch when you have a single dose remaining.
