Sage

Sage 

Sage is a common herb found in most kitchen gardens. With its pebbled gray-green leaves, it is easily identified. The fragrantleaves add flavor to meat and vegetable dishes in many different cuisines. Besides its current popularity as a seasoning, it has had a long history as a medicinal herb. Used by the ancient Greeks and Romans, it became well-known for treating many ailments including mental illness and epilepsy. 

Key Medicinal Uses 

Internally – Sage has been used to improve memory, to stimulate hormone production, as a natural antibiotic, to reduce muscle spasms and to prevent excessive perspiration and salivation. When weaning a baby, drinking the herbal tea will help reduce milk production and so prevent mastitis. Some women use it to reduce hot flushes and to boost natural estrogen production during menopause. Others use it to relieve female sterility. It can also help with digestive upset, gas and diarrhea. The herb is known to be antifungal and antiviral as well. It is also being used to treat symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. 

Externally – Sage makes a good mouth wash to freshen breath and it is good for sore throat, laryngitis, gingivitis, tonsillitis and bleeding gums. It is used externally to treat sprains, swelling, bleeding and ulcers, help muscle cramps and spasms as well as treat stiff joints and backaches. 

Other Uses – Sage is traditionally used when roasting poultry. It is also a common herb used in Italian cuisine.

 

Parts Used 

Leaves – The leaves are used both for making herbal remedies and for seasoning food. 

Preparation and Dosage 

If you are treating sore throats, gingivitis or any inflammation of the mouth, 3 grams of chopped leaf can be put into two cups of boiling water. Steep the tea for ten minutes and then strain before use. This preparation can be used as a mouthwash or gargle several times per day. You could also choose to use 5 ml of fluid extract diluted in a glass of water for the same purpose. If you are taking sage internally, the herbal tea preparation described here can be taken three times a day.
