A few weeks ago I traveled up North to see my precious granddaughter. What a blessing she is. As soon as I got there I could smell the pollen in the air. Thankfully, I brought along my nettle.
Nettle (also known as stinging nettle), has some pretty impressive health benefits. It detoxifies the body, boosts immune health, lowers inflammation, increases milk production in nursing mothers, improves respiratory conditions, and my favorite benefit, nettle is a natural antihistamine!!!
Nettle is full of iron, vitamin k, calcium and potassium. The dried herb can be used to make a tea using 1 tbsp in 8 oz of water. Steep for 10 - 15 minutes, add a little honey or maple syrup and you have a tea that really packs a punch.
My awesome son-in-law also suffers from allergies and my beautiful daughter is currently breastfeeding so needless to say the nettle tea with its many benefits really helped us all.
