It helps your heart and kidneys, your digestive system, rheumatism, etc. It is also good for your skin and hair.

Directions:

Put the nettles in a jar. Fill it 75%. Pour the honey on top of the nettles till the jar is full. For 30 days stir the mix daily.

Filter the mix and keep it in the fridge.  Take everyday a teaspoon. You can add it on top of pancakes or in your tea.

Enjoy!

  1. Stinging nettles really are a great nutritional gem, and the tea is wonderful. I like using them because I get a sort of revenge for all the times I’ve been “stung” while weeding! Lovely photographs!

  2. Fascinating! And to think, I look past nettles all the time. Who knew they had such benefits?

    Well, you did, obviously, and now, after reading your article, the rest of us do too!
