Measure herbs and put them into a glass half-gallon juice jar. Pour boiling water in until the jar is totally full; cover tightly.

Steep for at least eight hours.

This brew contains three excellent sources of iron: Nettle, Parsley, and Yellow Dock.

It provides folic acid from the Parsley and vitamin B12 from the Comfrey.
The green herbs all contribute vitamin C which aids iron absorption.
The mint makes it tasty.
