Cleansing elixir
Gather a small basket full of young nettles. First rinse the nettles in cold water, then cut them into pieces. Put them into a mixer, add some water and puree the mixture. A thick, dark green juice will form, which can be watered down using water. Strain the juice into a clean jar and store in the fridge. Take 1 tablespoon a day and it should last the entire 40 days of the cleanse.
