Today is day 3 of my #herbalmedicineeveryday challenge, and I’m making a nettle infusion, inspired by the great American herbalist Susun Weed.
Nettle is rich in iron & vitamin K to name a few things, and it’s gently cleansing to the body. To really get all of those nutrients out of the plant, you need to steep for at least 4 – 10 hours.

Starting today I’m challenging myself to get more herbal medicine into my body (to get some of the nutrients I may not be getting despite a healthy diet.) For the rest of the month I’ll be enjoying some of the many herbs I’ve bought but haven’t used yet. Feel free to follow along or join me on instagram by using the hashtag #HerbalMedicineEveryday
Starting simple today with some passion tea (hibiscus + licorice root + orange peel + cinnamon + rose hips + lemon grass)
