Nettle Tea – Excellent Remedy For Blood Cleansing
People have known about the benefits of nettles for centuries now. It’s proven to purify blood by removing toxins and metabolic waste. Nettles stimulate your kidneys and encourage them to release more water.
Nettle tea is completely safe for consumption by children and adults, but we recommend consulting a medical doctor before you take a new herb such as nettles.
As you probably know you get stung when you touch the nettle plant. The pain from the sting can last for a long time. So you should wear gloves, along with a long-sleeved shirt and long pants when hunting and harvesting nettles.
Cut the two bracts of leaves with garden clippers or scissors, giving the nettles enough matter left to regenerate and continue to grow. Put a pot or a bag next to the plant and clip the nettle so the clippings land into it.
Recipe for Nettle Tea
• 2 cups of water
• 1 cup of nettle leaves
– Place the nettle leaves in the water and heat until it nearly boils
– Use two cups of water per cup of nettles; no need for specific measurements or weights
– Seep the tea for longer to make it stronger, or add extra water to weaken it. After the water starts to boil reduce the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes
– Pour the tea through a strainer and drink when strained
Some people like to sweeten the tea by adding some sugar but I personally like the taste without needing to add anything to it.
When introducing something new to your body you need to do so gradually. You should only need to drink a cup or two of the nettle tea to get the great benefits. If you’re new to taking nettles then you should begin with small amounts of nettles.
