Stinging Nettle is one of the most valuable medicinal herbs. It is beneficial for headaches, blood cleansing, liver, gallbladder and spleen disorders, cancer, gout, hay fever, allergies and more.  The high iron content makes it an excellent energy-boosting drink for eliminating symptoms of fatigue and exhaustion.

My Amish herbalist friend asked if I was drinking Nettle Tea this spring.  After four weeks of drinking the tea, she claims that she is able to work twice as hard with renewed vitality and energy. I'm going to give it a try. Here is her method for brewing the tea.


9 to 12 fresh leaves or 3 teaspoon of dried herbs 
3 cups of water

Bring water to a boil and pour over herbs. Fresh herbs are steeped for 30 seconds. Dried herbs are steeped one to two minutes. The tea should be a quite light. Mint leaves may be added to enhance the flavor.

Drink 1 cup on an empty stomach an hour before breakfast. Sip another 1 to 2 cups throughout the day. The effect is heightened if the tea is only sipped, even before breakfast. The daily requirement of tea can be made in the morning and put in a thermos flask for sipping.  Take daily for 4 weeks.

I'll be drinking my tea and expecting more vim, vigor, and vitality,
