Wilma: This herbal tea garden has been 2 years in the planning. I think this year I should plant it, don’t you? *LOL* I will take pictures of my progress to share.
DJ: Duly noted about planting sage…thank you for the heads up.
I’m with Carol’s question, so I did a “Google search”; sage has a long history of medicinal effectiveness, especially in digestive disorders and colds. The leaves sooth menopausal sweets, anxiety and depression. It also aids in brain function, i.e., memory. It’s being considered a treatment for Alzheimer’s. WOW! Pretty impressive pedigree… I’m planting LOTS of sage. *LOL*
On WebMD it states that sage interacts with diabetes meds; like the med, it lowers blood sugar. I take diabetes meds for insulin resistance… ideas are running rampant in my mind. It also interacts with anticonvulsants and CNS depressants. Not taking any of those families of drugs – so no worry.
Back to Carol’s question… for me it’s a drying process of the sage leaves, and then mixed with other teas or it can stand alone. The Chinese prefer it over their black teas. I am still investigating and learning about teas and how to mix them so I don’t hurt myself and the family.
DJ, you have opened a huge maelstrom for me, and it’s a GREAT thing too! *LOL* Thank you.
