Nettles = Allergy Relief

If you have Spring allergies, starting to drink stinging nettles infusion now will help you a lot.

Stinging nettles were my first herbal ally. When I was in my 20s, I was on lots of prescription and over the counter allergy meds every Spring. A friend of mind suggested I start drinking nettles as a blood nourisher and to my surprise, my allergies miraculously got better. I couldn’t believe it!

This amazing wild edible plant is packed with lots of beneficial goodness. Nettles have more calcium than milk, they have lots of B vitamins, iron, chlorophyll, and are packed with antioxidants. They are healers of the earth and if you have ever gotten stung by stinging nettles, you know they pack a punch.

Here is a recipe to enjoy:

Basic Allergy Treatment Infusion:

Put 1 cup dried nettles, in a 1/2 gallon mason jar.

Additions: 1/2 cup oat straw, a few cardamom pods, and 1 T dried dandelion root, and ½ t. licorice root (or marshmallow root if you have high blood pressure).

Fill the jar with boiling water, put the lid on, and let it sit for 4-16 hours. Strain out the herbs. 

Keep this concentrated tea in the refrigerator and mix 1 - 2 cups a day with hot water and drink it warm.

This takes some time to build up in your system to fight allergies, so be consistent about drinking it every day. Make a new batch every 4-6 days.
