Remarkable Sage

Posted by Lala Naidu on

Sage offers more than as savory herb used sparingly in seasonal cooking – It is a remarkable culinary remedy! It aids in digestion of fatty foods, lowers cholesterol levels and is a liver tonic. As we move into Autumn and Winter, use the tea or in a spray form* for colds, sore throats and ear infections. Too, a few drops of sage essential oil along with lavender and rosemary in very warm water makes a relaxing foot bath any season, or the same combination as a facial steam.
