This stinging nettle infusion delivers serious nutrition, especially in the way of minerals and iron!
It’s helpful as a daily tonic for supporting adrenals, as nourishment to the immune system and is very effective for regulating allergic response.
After brewing for a few hours (or overnight!) this green tonic looks stronger than it tastes, you’ll grow to love it quickly!
It’s just as pleasant enjoyed warm with maple syrup and homemade hemp milk as it is iced with a squeeze of lemon, and dumped right in with your water for sipping at nutrients all day long.
Energizing, nutrient-rich, and bursting with chlorophyll for detox and cellular support, this super-herb should have its place in every home pantry.
Gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegan, and delicious!

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsps Dried Nettles (heaping)
  • 3½ cups Water (just under boiling)
Instructions
  1. Scoop dried loose-leaf nettle leaf into bottom of quart sized mason jar.
  2. Add almost boiling water to mason jar, leaving some room at the top. Cover immediately.
  3. Allow to steep at least 4 hours and up to 8. Leaving it overnight works well to enjoy a morning drink.
  4. Strain nettles from water. Drink 1 cup per day, refrigerate the remainder for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
Notes
Drink Warm Warm your nettle tea and add honey and homemade hemp or almond milk.

Drink Cold: Ice your tea and add a generous squeeze of lemon (which actually helps with absorption of the nutrients!) or add a splash to your water bottle and drink it all day long.

More Benefits/ Flavor: Nettles can be blended with other helpful herbs and brew all at the same time. Lemon balm, oat straw, red raspberry leaf, holy basil, and peppermint are all good friends with stinging nettles!

No Waste: The finished herbs, after brewing, still have some nutrients in them! Toss some of the herb in your soups, bone broth, casseroles, dogs food, or compost pile for expanding the nutrients even more!

Foods that Heal: This stinging nettle infusion delivers serious nutrition, especially in the way of minerals and iron! It's helpful as a daily tonic for supporting adrenals, as nourishment to the immune system and is very effective for regulating allergic response.
