Fill a jar half way with dried stinging nettle. Fill jar with boiling water. Cover with lid. Let sit overnight on the counter. In the morning, strain the herbs. Put infusion in your fridge. This batch will last me 3-5 days. Drink throughout the day or take a swig each day.
Add strained herbs to your compost pile instead of throwing them away.
Stinging Nettle is bitter, so feel free to sweeten it anyway you like. I like to add honey.
This plant has been used most commonly throughout history as a diuretic and for treating painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anemia. Today, it’s used primarily to treat urinary issues, as well as allergies and joint pain. Stinging Nettle infusion also makes a great hair rinse to encourage hair growth.
