Sage dried (organic)
Dried Herb - Sage (organic)
Latin / INCI: Salvia officinalis
As its English name, Sage, suggests, this plant has associations with the wisdom of longevity and is certainly a plant herbalists consider for some elderly patients. It is used in traditional western herbal medicine as a gargle and mouthwash for sore throat, tonsillitis and mouth ulcers and as a tea for alleviating excessive sweating (including hot flushes of menopause), depression, poor memory and mental confusion. Sage also has a role to play in reducing blood sugar levels in some cases of diabetes.
Externally, a shampoo rinse with Sage infusion is said to delay greying of the hair.
Caution! Because Sage stimulates blood circulation it should not be taken when pregnant, nor if you have high blood pressure, epilepsy or kidney complaints.
50g in cellophane bag or 200g in plastic press-seal bag.
