I picked some beautiful wild nettles in nature to make… a juice! So the nettle juice doesn’t sting the tongue, it’s true, but when I put the nettles in the extractor, my fingers suffered a little 😉 It was worth it because nettle is an extraordinary plant for us, really rich in minerals. So the green juice of the day was nettle, grapefruit, apple, sweet potato, parsley and fennel. When I put a lot of nettle in my juices, they become very thick with a fresh grassy smell. But I feel how good it makes my whole body feel, it’s really powerful and… free! Nettles grow in places with a little bit of water or in shaded places in the forest. April is the season my friend my sister.
During my pregnancies, I used to make super concentrated nettle tea. Full of silicon, nettle is very important to strengthen the bones and fight fatigue. Nettle fights acidity in the body, protects the lungs, eliminates mucus, promotes the elimination of toxins by the kidneys and strengthens the skin, nails and hair.
