Red Moon Herbs dried nettle (Urtica dioica) is of the finest quality, with a rich, green smell and taste indicative of the incredible quantities of nutrients and minerals such as chlorophyll and iron it possesses. Consumed as an infusion, nettle nourishes the whole body, promotes the health of the kidneys and the adrenals, aids a healthy immune response to allergens, and supports the functions of the immune system and the hormonal system.* Nettle is perhaps the most nutritive plant on the planet and can benefit anyone at any time of life during every season.
How to Use:
Nettle is the perfect herb to make infusions. To make an herbal infusion, place one ounce (about a cup) of dried herb into a quart mason jar. Fill it with boiling water, put a lid on it, and let it steep for 4-8 hours. If you like, you can add a pinch of mint or licorice root for flavor. Then strain out the plant material, compost it, and enjoy one or more cups of the liquid daily. Infusions are delicious warm or cold and can be sweetened with honey or any other natural sweetener. They keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
