How To Make A Healthy, Mineral-Rich, Tasty Herbal Infusion

by lydia on January 21, 2016

Herbs are a wonderful addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. They provide additional nourishment and can be delicious as well.

In a day when we just can’t get enough nutrition from our food, adding herbs is another step you can take to support vibrant health. Don’t wait until you are sick to use herbs. The best medicine is prevention. Herbs can support longevity, and I believe they can and should be used every day to enhance wellness.

I make and drink herbal infusions daily and so do my kids. I’m always playing around blending different herbs and when I hit on a good blend, I love to share it with others. I’ve been making one in particular lately that we all really love around here and am here to share that recipe.

How To Make A Healthy, Mineral-Rich, Tasty Herbal Infusion
Recipe type: Beverage
  • 2 cups nettles
  • 1 cup hibiscus flowers
  • 1 cup Red Clover flowers
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. of green leaf stevia
  1. Add all dry herbs to a gallon vessel, add hot water, stir, put on the lid and steep overnight, up to 24 hours.
  2. Strain and add more water to fill. Refrigerate and use up within 3-4 days.

I buy my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.

 Nettles are a great way to get some minerals and supportive nutrients! My clients report that they feel amazing once they add nettles infusion regularly! Red clover also has some wonderful properties and minerals that are supportive for women’s health concerns (be sure to read the link below for more insights on its benefits). Hibiscus makes it rich in that beautiful color and is rich in vitamin C and bioflavonoids.

To learn more about the minerals in these wonderful herbs, read the following articles:

I buy my herbs in bulk every 3 months. When I make up a blend, I store it in an airtight jar to keep handy for use. These are the jars I use to store herbs. We also love our glass mason jar mugs with the handle. One cool thing about these mugs is you can put a lid on for travel or store what you don’t finish in the fridge.

If you love the idea of adding herbs and herbal infusions or other herbal recipes to your life, I highly recommend getting started with Rosemary Gladstar’s book, ‘Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health‘.

Thank you for this info. What do you think about eating these plants instead of making teas?

Hi Albina,
That’s an interesting idea! There are definitely some plants, like Dandelion, that you can eat:

However, unprocessed nettles are generally raw “stinging nettles” in the wild and would be painful to masticate uncooked. Feel free to look into the possibilities and let us know what you find! For now, we find this to be the best way to consume the great vitamins and minerals from these plants.
