Nettles and nettle tea are a great restorative and soothing medicinal used to help with postpartum fatigue, exhaustion and some of the anxiety that many new mothers feel.
Nettle tea is very nourishing though it has a robust leafy flavor. I sometimes have it instead of a cup of black tea because it gives me a slight pick me up, but it’s calming at the same time, unlike black tea. Its deep green chlorophyll helps create strong rich blood which strengthens a woman’s vitality. Since they are both a calming and restorative herb, nettles are a great choice as part of a natural treatment for postpartum fatigue and anxiety.
