This week, I am bringing you a new recipe for you to try. Have you heard of white dead nettle tea? It’s so easy to make and to find!
I’m sure you all know what a nettle looks like. Don’t worry, I won’t be making you pick any of that! Instead, look for a plant that looks just like a nettle, only with white flowers on it. This is a dead nettle, meaning it does not sting. Collect a few of them, so you have approximately 30 little white flowers. When you’re at home, boil some water, pick the flowers off and brew! Leave it for about 15mins so all the beneficial ingredients have a chance to soak in. Taste with honey and enjoy! And the benefits? Here they are:
- Treats mild swelling of the upper airways
- It has a sedating effect
- If applied to the vagina, it can treat the odor of vaginal discharge
