  • 2 oz dried nettle leaf You can use fresh as well, but will need double.
  • 2 oz dried mint same as above
  • 10 dried red clover heads


  1. Put all of the herbs in a non-reactive pot such as an enamel. Add 2 quarts of water. Once you reach a boil turn off the heat. Allow to steep for 5 minutes. Pour into a large, clean mason jar. Press on the internal lid so it sticks. Screw on top. Leave on the counter until cool and after keep in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Play around with the taste. I usually throw in herbs based on how I or my family is feeling. If everyone is stressed use more mint. If you are dealing with lady problems go heavy on the nettle and clover. For beautiful hair and skin try nettle and horsetail. I always add alot of mint, as the nettle flavor is quite earthy.
