Black Nettle Syrup

I make this dark healing syrup for myself, for two reasons.  First, I suffer from anemia.  My iron levels, Vitamins B12 and D are often low.  Second, I have allergies.  Nettles (Stinging Nettles) help both of my problems in one delicious syrup.  And with the added Black Strap Molasses and honey, I receive even greater benefits.

Low energy and fatigue are my number one problem with the anemia.  When I get “down”, I take a teaspoon everyday of this marvelous syrup.  And, it works wonders for my allergies too, you know, itchy eyes and throat, etc.

This easy to make syrup may help you with:

  • low energy levels, fatigue
  • poor immunity
  • anemia
  • dysentery
  • inflammation and fever
  • detoxification
  • rheumatism and arthritis
  • bleeding
  • tissue regeneration
  • hair loss
  • coughs
  • asthma
  • stress

 

So, here’s my recipe…

Black Nettle Syrup

  • 1 cup dried Nettle leaves, or 2 cups fresh leaves
  • 1/8 cup Black Strap Molasses
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 2 cups distilled water

 

I love using my Granny’s bowl to make my herbal remedies.  She’s the one who got me interested in herbs.  She was a special lady, always kind and soft-spoken, and she loved plants just like me.

 

Directions

Combine Nettles and water in a pot.  Bring to a slow boil, and reduce heat to lowest setting.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  You’ll get a lovely dark color extracted from the nettles.  That’s your healing vitamins and minerals!

 

 

Strain out the nettles through a cheesecloth or a piece of cotton muslin like I use.  Return the nettle water to a clean pot.

 

 

Add the molasses syrup, and simmer uncovered for another 30 minutes.  Remove from heat, and cool to a warm temp.

Add the honey to 1 cup nettle/molasses syrup (you may need to add a little water) and mix well.  Do not add honey to hot syrup, it will destroy the healing benefits.

Bottle the syrup in your favorite glass container, and refrigerate for up to three months.

 

Dosage

Eat a spoonful a day, every morning on an empty stomach for 3 weeks, and you will notice how this ritual will improve your overall well-being each day. You can soon expect to feel more energetic and focused. And if you’ve been experiencing joint pain or coughs before taking this syrup, you’ll notice how these symptoms will be significantly reduced.
