SAGE- Old English experience states, there is no need to die if sage is in the garden. The strong, aromatic, camphorous odor along with the warm, mild bitter taste, has made it a favorite as flavoring for soups and seasonings. Much is made today of hair color, so for those who desire no gray hair, Sage with Rosemary as a rinse and taken internally will restore and preserve hair color. However, with continued use, the hair may be somewhat darker than the original color. Indeed, falling hair loss (where the root is not destroyed) and dandruff can be remedied with the extract massaged into the scalp. Sage is a great regulator for sexual activity. Excessive desire, as well as enfeebled ability are both normalized. In taking enough Sage internally to care for hair, this side effect of normalized sexual activity may also be noted. As of yet, no complaints have been reported with these side effects. To counteract night sweats, Sage has long been revered. Its effect on the Medulla oblongata (brain stalk) provides us with remedial action for breathing, heart and blood pressure problems. For those who use their voice for singing or public speaking, Sage is a remedy for laryngitis and produces a strong voice. Many recorded cases of periodic depression have been lifted by continued use, as depression can occur in many cases due to physical problems.* DOSAGE: 20 to 40 drops two times per day. As a rinse for the hair one part extract to 4 parts water. SOURCES: William Boericke, "Material Medica;" Alma R.

"British research suggests taking single doses of sage instantly sharpens memory skills, helping people recall names, places and other facts 11 times more accurately for at least two hours! Brand new research shows that when perimenopausal women take sage, their hot flashes, night sweats and excess perspiration are cut by 50%. Study subjects felt significantly cooler within two hours of taking their first dose -- and the effects lasted, even if they only took the herb every other day! Recent laboratory studies show that sage can quickly kill 65 different strains of bacteria, fungi and viruses, including E. coli, salmonella and fungus that causes chronic yeast infections. And Dutch researchers found it can even destroy up to 70% of the tough-to-treat staphylococcus bacteria." Source: Woman's World, Feb. 22, 2004
