RE: Garden Herbs - Sage

in The Herbal Hive7 months ago

Gosh I am loving this series of yours, even if it takes a while to comment! Busy.

I love sage - I never really thought about it as useful until I started diving deep into it. For me, it's for sore throats - an ACV/sage tincture is always on hand. But also for colds.

And yes, as a regulator. Hitting menopause meant that I started taking sage all the time, but it had no effect on my night sweats. Perhaps I had to take it for longer. Really fascinating post, @ligayagardener. Have you studied herbalism formally?

Yeah I hear you!! Plus it's exoensive. I like to learn about plants more the old school way, reading, listening, experimenting, discovering..

I've a really short attention span as I get older😂
