Stinging Nettle Infusion

Stinging Nettle infusion brings out the best in the nettle plant. Since it steeps for a while, more minerals come out of the plant and are available for absorption into your body. You can drink the finished infusion over ice, warm, or use it as a soup stock.

Here's how to make stinging nettle infusion:

  1. Put one cup of dried stinging nettle herb in a one quart jar
  2. Pour boiling water over the herbs.
  3. Cover and let steep on the counter 4-8 hours.
  4. After at least 4 hours, you can refrigerate, drink it, cook with it, etc.

I find that nettle is great for the adrenal glands, the connective tissue, and helps keep me energized.
