In the herbalist or in the garden, sage has a variety of medicinal properties. These plants are good for menstruation, digestion, sore throat and hair loss.
Used in baths and oils by Hildegarde de Bingen, organic sage also develops its medicinal virtues in herbal teas. A little hot water, bags of dried leaves and a few minutes of patience allow to obtain a quality herbal tea.
What are the properties of the sage tea ?
The sage officinale, or salvia officinalis, is the variety of the plant most used in phytotherapy. However, pineapple sage, white sage and clary sage oil share similar benefits on the body.
Herbal medicine favors organic herbal products containing quality leaves. The main use of the plant (leaf and flower) is for menopausal disorders such as hot flashes and excessive sweating. But, the benefits of sage tea are multiple.
Indeed, sage leaf tea also relieves:
- sore throat,
- digestion disorders,
- absence of menstruation.
Sage tea has a general tonic action on health. Its regular use produces a regenerative effect on the organism, badly treated by modern life.
How to make a sage infusion?
Sage adorns gardens because of its beautiful flowers, but the leaf of salvia officinalis is the main ingredient of herbal tea.
To benefit from all the medicinal properties of the garden plant, you must choose quality leaves. In herbalist's shop, bags of organic sage officinalis allow a quick infusion in a little hot water. The essential oils bring stronger effects. Their action can cause severe hormonal disturbances.
Because of its tonic effect, organic sage tea should not be consumed in excess. Its effect on hormones requires caution in women, even to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and sweating.
Hair loss requires external use of the product. In this case, the benefits of sage tea appear within minutes. Then remember to rinse the decoction of sage leaves with clear water.
The use in bath, with soft virtues, relieves the skin problems and the emotional overflows, common in the modern life. The products added are the leaves, the flowers and the oil.
