Nettle leaf or stinging nettles should be handled with gloves if harvesting wild. Their stings can be painful, place them in a bowl of cold water for a few hours to remove the sting.

Remove mint leaves from stem, toss the stems or use as compost.

Process all ingredients through your masticating juicer.
