Learning how to make this drink was one of the greatest gifts of knowledge and forever I am grateful. Here’s a big thank you to my friend Lauren for introducing me to Nettle Infusions. Cheers to sharing healthy recipes with friends and family!
Quick & Easy Nettles Infusion Recipe
Add about 1/2 – 1 cup dried nettles to 1 quart almost boiling water in a glass mason jar.
(use 1/2cup nettles to 1 quart if it’s your first time and work your way up to 1 cup)
Put the Lid on and leave it on the counter over night or for at least 6 hours.
Strain the infusion into a cup or another jar; it’s best to use a funnel and a cheesecloth or metal strainer.
You can re-steep the same herb 2x.
Where To Find Nettles
You can find nettles at almost any health food store. Normally they are in the bulk bin section near the spices and herbs or in the tea section.
Nettle Infusions Are My Cold & Flu Prevention & Remedy
This herbal infusion is one of my favorite pre-breakfast rituals. I feel when I’m finished drinking it…energized, light, full, warm and focused.
Too often we find ourselves obsessing over labels and nutritional facts but we forget to let go of our thoughts and take a moment to actually feel how our body is reacting to what we just put inside it.
For me it has been an acquired skill to really understand my body’s way of communicating. But once I could interpret the different “feelings” or symptoms, it became hard to ignore!

I’m ready for surgery. I really wanted to keep my wisdom teeth but they’re more trouble than they’re worth. 😒 I was prescribed amoxicillin, Vicodin and a mouthwash, but you know me, I’m going the natural route instead. Today’s meal plan includes Nettle’s infusion (filled with iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin c, silica, chlorophyll and more), echinacea, milk thistle, and clove tea (anti-inflammatory, natural antibiotic, detoxifies liver from anesthesia) and I made a ginger/clove mouthwash. I will also have fresh apple juice, kombucha, my green drink made with 100’s of different herbs, roots, barks, berries, seeds and veggies, and my favorite cashew banana milkshakes. 😋#naturallife #noantibiotics #nopainkillers #healwithfood #wisdomteethremoval
