9-6-09-SageGRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning Sage. Just the word brings up the image of someone or something wise and full of life wisdom. Well, garden sage is just such an herb. Sage was once considered to have potent magical powers. Sage really shines in its medicinal uses as it is a powerful healing plant. Sage is astringent, anti-septic, anti-fungal, anti-spasmodic and contains plant estrogen. Garden sage is a wonderful herb for the wise woman who is having issues in menopause. Sage tea is wonderful for hot flashes in your menopausal years. Sage is a great tea for winter colds and flu as it soothes the throat and helps with its expectorant properties for those coughs. In the kitchen, sage is great for stuffings, good with meat, pork, sausage and cheese. Plant sage in your garden as it is easy to grow and has such great medicinal and culinary uses.
