Heart-shaped leaves of Nettle are used from ancient Greek tradition to help flush toxins and excess fluids from the body, also to reduce the swelling of arthritic joints, and clear your mind.
Nettle has aromatic notes of fresh herbs and for many, it has something that reminds us of the flavor of matcha teas but is slightly softer. Combined with fruit, it has also added vitamins and minerals (C, A, and D if you use the fruits we propose, although you can change any of them depending on the seasonal): a health cocktail in one shot to your daily routine.
