Organic Stinging Nettle Leaf Tea
A mineral rich, nutrient packed tea, that imparts a gentle energy boost by giving your body the minerals it is craving. Stinging Nettles are one of my favorite plant allies in the garden. A great source of vitamins A, D, E and K. Loaded with magnesium and calcium, as well as the critical trace minerals: selenium, sulphur, zinc, chromium, and bone-building boron. In addition to its nutritive benefits, Nettles are also amazingly anti-inflammatory, and anti-histamine, helping to ease those general aches and pains as well as allergic type symptoms, they promote hair growth, help to facilitate better blood sugar control in patients with diabetes, decrease water retention, and support adrenal and kidney function helping us to better manage the stressors we may face.
Dose: Although this tea can be enjoyed by simply steeping 2 heaping tablespoons per oz of water, the greatest benefit comes in producing what is called a nourishing herbal infusion. To create your infusion, begin by measuring 1 oz (approximately 30 grams) of Stinging Nettle Leaf Tea. Measure out 32 oz of water and add that to a pot. Bring the water up to a boil. When the water boils, turn the heat off, slide the pot off the hot burner, add your ounce of nettles to the pot, gently stir them so that they are all wet. Put a lid on the pot and allow to infuse for at least four hours, or overnight, whichever is easiest for you. Add honey and lemon to taste and enjoy!

We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
