The last fortnight I've been taking 2 to 4 cups a day of nettle infusion, following Susun Weed's approach of nourishing the body with herbal infusions instead of/as well as treating the body with herbs in response to problems.
(I find that supplementing magnesium helps to keep down the number of migraine attacks I have and through trial and error have found that it only works if I take enough calcium and vitamins with it. Unfortunately, taking enough magnesium to have an effect on my migraine tends to upset my stomach, so I am ever on the lookout for ways of boosting magnesium gently ... at the moment I'm trying epsom salt baths as a means of absorbing the mineral directly through the skin.)
The liquid is thick and rich, rather than watery, but still has the lovely green earthy taste of nettle tea - not strong or bitter as I might have expected from stewing so long. I'm using the leftovers to water my houseplants .. may try as a hair rinse too. And, I have to say, you have never seen such perky looking plants (I only wish I had taken a 'before' photo so I could show you their rapid improvement with some nettle love!!)
