Can I use fresh leaves also to make tea? And how much should be taken?
I usually boil a fistful of fresh leaves in a big pot of water and store in several glass jars in the fridge after it cools down. When I am about to consume it, I halfway fill a mug and add water. Add honey if u cant stomach the taste. I also use this tea soaked in a rag (undiluted) to use topically. Works like a charm ;)
does anyone knows which and where I can buy sage tea? which brand of sage tea is more effective or better? please advice. thanks
You can make your own if you have the time. Bring water to a boil then add sage leaves or powder. Boil for 10-15 minutes then use as needed.
Use the ordinary sage that you buy in the Supermarket try the Dried Leaves half a teaspoon in a boiling cup of water allow to stand for +-20 minutes
I usually don't leave comments on any websites but I had to leave this one because it may help someone out there. I don't take pain killer "drugs" and I learnt that sage is good for headaches. I tried it at least three times so far when I've had terrible headaches and boy is it true that it works! The headache was gone in literally less than five minutes after finishing my cup of tea! Amazing! Thank God for the healing power of herbs!
good for laryngitus.
on steriods for ulcerative colitis which cause excessive sweating at night. A couple of sage tea drinks at night have made a MASSIVE difference. Having read the other benefits, it will help with the other side effects of the steriods and condition (reduced immune system, fatigue, mouth ulcers, inflamation) And all I've got to do is have a drink of tea!
I feel it makes me less nervous. less depressed
i choose to get sage in organic Italian's supermarket and a year ago i started growing my own ... when the wind blows the aroma is heavenly ! plus it isn't hard to grow sage ... it isn't needy ... there is a huge when you have it in your pots or gardens ...
i make my sage tea like Arab's way . Boil water , remove from fire and add black tea and handful of sage and let it sit for 4 to 5 min and strain , add sugar as desired and enjoy ! ( i am not an Arab , but i saw this while i visited Cairo , Egypt few years ago and fell in love )
oh ! Arab's put sugar first in the boiling water to be exact . Any Arab's out here ???
I have sage plants and the fuzzy side also helps whiten teeth. I rub the fuzzy part on my teeth until it squeaks. One leaf per tooth. I did that for one week and it was better than the over the counter teeth whiteners.
My teeth were very stained from coffee etc.
I put a "little pinch of dried GROUND SAGE"
on my toothbrush & toothpaste.
It made my teeth very white, shiny, and polished.
I thank God and call it a Miracle!
PLEASE DON'T TRY BRUSHING WITH GROUND SAGE LIKE I DID! AFTER HEARING IT CAN DARKEN GREY HAIR, I STOPPED USING IT. I'LL LOOK FOR A PLANT
AND TRY THE FUZZY LEAVES LIKE DEEDEE DID.
I TRIED TO DELETE MY LAST POST, AND WAS UNABLE TO. I HOPE PEOPLE READ THIS BEFORE TRYING THE GROUND SAGE LIKE I DID!!! (PLEASE FORGIVE ME).
I will look for a sage plant and try that!
This is the best thing I have ever used for IBS, mine is so bad I can't move but this works great. I buy dried sage at the mexican store for 79 cents a pack and it last for a couple weeks. I put the sage leaves about 2 pinches in hot water and let it set for 10 minutes strain it and add sweetener drink it and in 10 minutes the pain is gone.
Can you use ground sage instead of leafs?
Such an awareness towards the Sage benefits are good for the people who are facing out the problem say excessive sweating..
I JUST CAME ACROOSS THIS Article and i have beeing usuing sage for about 4moths now. Sage tea with Honey and Lemon. I suffer from Panic attacks and Axiety attacks. When i am around too many people and i start feeling like i need space or can breathd, I just need 2be alone in a quiet space. Sage helps be deal. Off course i take my meds but Sage helps me alot and sometimes i even add Ginger.
I too suffer from Panic Attacks and I did not know until now that Sage would help in this to a great extent. I am going to try it out. But In my country I don't think we have the fresh stuff. I managed to get the Australia dried stuff . Can I drink it like drinking Tea. I would like to know.
Yes, you can infuse the dry leaves to make tea. Just add boiled water and cover for five minutes.( covering were preserve essential oils in the tea) Basic rule is use a teaspoon to pint for medicinal value, yet dilute to any taste level you wish with water. It can be quite strong.
I love sage. The volatile aroma can be a bit overwhelming, but a small amount is great when used with black tea like ceylon. It's great for aroma therapy and gives a nice cognitive boost. Pair it with rosemary for an extra kick.
It is very easily grown in your garden and its organic..
How is this sage different from "white" sage?
you may buy the sage herb from a Mediterranean store or foreign section in your regular grocery store
always boil the water first then add the herb and turn stove off and let stand for 10 to 15 min before serving.
I started getting hot flashes during the night and taking the doona off and on all night. A naturopath told me to make up a pot of sage tea and drink througout the day and in about 2-3 weeks, they were gone and I notice once a month I get waves of heat every now and then and this lasts for a few days only and then not again till next month. Because I have had a hysterectomy, I worked out this was when my period would have been due. I bought a teapot with the insert for herbs (in coles for $10,00) and add three teaspoons of sage from my healthshop ready packed (I found the organic too strong and foul in taste) and let it stand overnight and drink the next day, roughly three cups and this amount works for me. Sleeping really well and find it a gods send. You need to stick to a good routine as the oil needs to stay built up in your body to work but once you have done so for a few weeks, you won't look back. Hope this helps
How can sage be taken to cure a cold but not dry mother's milk?
I put dried sage (regular bottled herb at regular supermarket) in warm almond oil and stored it in a dark bottle in a closet for 3 weeks. I then strained it and added to a spray bottle. I used it to treat cuts, scrapes, bug bites and any skin irritations that me or my kid experienced last summer. Sage is so awesome.
I've been taking the tincture made by a local herbalist for me. While I would not recommend depending on it for mental health concerns, it really has helped in alleviating heaty pre-menopausal symptoms (in conjunction with <a href="http://www.herbwisdom.com/herb-dong-quai.html">Dong Quai</A>). And I only need to use it in small amounts so it's turned out to be cost effective.
ok i want to try sage tea for my hand sweating
how it work for treat scalp from dandruff & for treat of vaginal bacteria & vaginal fungal
I have recently joined the age group for women where hot flushes are becoming a problem. Sage was recommended to me to help alleviate my syptoms and it really has worked.
I used sage last night (grown and dried by me) for Menopause symptoms. I slept like a rock last night. I had only one brief hot flash that could barely be called a hot flash. I woke up, turned over and it was already done. No sweats or anything. Will be using this a lot.
I crushed 3 leaves, and mixed them with Gunpowder Chinese Green tea, and put into my 1 cup sized tea ball. Steeped in very hot water for 4 min. Drank 1/3 and went to bed. When I had the one hot flash, I got up went and drank 3-4 more swallows of the tea, and this morning I finished the cup. Wonderful flavor, and it was tasty hot or cold.
sage works well for me, takes away headache and nervous tension, Relaxing and clean feeling after drinking tea!
I was advised by my holistic doctor to bring water to a boil then add sage. Preferrably fresh sage leaves if not sage can be found in the spice aisle. This was advised for nausea, and stomach bloating cause by gastritis. I also faced severe itching due to allergies, and a skin fungus. I bathed in it after brewing, and washed my face and hair with it. It soothed my skin, and stopped me from itching within minutes. If you are a naturalist such as myself who would rather not pop drugs into your system give it a try.
I have been putting 4 fresh sage leaves with my camomile tea before bed. Not only are my hot flushes greatly reduced, I am sleeping better than I have done in years. I am 55, and have tried many menopause treatments, but sage tea is by far the best. I love it.
Gives a clear head and a good feeling in the stomach. Calming, strengthening effect after feeling weak and under the weather.
I had the dried herb before and also fresh leaves from the garden.
I will definitely use it again anytime I feel a stress related headache.
It smells fragrant and is one of the best herbs I grow. Good stuff.
Not to mention the beautiful blue flower spikes when in bloom.
After suffering debilitating of all kinds of illnesses, I stumbled on a food supplement with added sage. As nothing whatever so ever had made me feel better or at my best, I came to a conclusion that sage might be the answer.
On researching here, most of my ailments were mentioned especially trapped mucus/bronchitis, severe cough, and general upper respiratory issues. After just one day I felt new again, I was spruced out in every nook and cranny of my body, I won't give vivid details, but you can imagine that.
By the way, this is my first ever review on any website. I hope and pray that anyone who have felt the way I did, finds this review useful too. And a Big thank you to the researchers, and Mother Nature for Power of healing herbs.

Turkish sage tea is best as its organic. :-)
Personally I just use store cupboard dried sage you buy for cooking, not the tea, it's cheaper and works brilliantly.
where can I purchase sage tea in Singapore!
can you grow sage in your home , will the smell help you body in any way
I have always suffered from excessive sweating and most recently began to have night sweats. I started drinking an infusion of the sage leaves as a tea and I don't have over active sweat glands anymore and I don't have night sweats anymore. I drink a cup in the morning and one in the evening. This is a powerful herb!
leaves are great but if you really want to get it into your blood I much prefer it powdered it's just as helpful..
U had leaves or powder..if powder than which brand..do let me know plz ?
Do I get Sage tea in South Africa&if so where will I get it
It's easy to grow your own sage. I have too large sage plants that are 2 years old. They are perennials and grow back year after year. I clip them daily and make tea every morning.
need sage leaf for smudging (sp?) - 603.437.0208 - bulk - thanks. Doug
I use sage to treat boils/abscesses. It works really well at stopping the pain and helping with the inflammation. It also helps to speed up the time it takes for the boil to pop. Directions: get a package of sage from a grocery store, boil 1/4cup of water on the stove with the sage leaves (literally JUST until you notice the water boiling) turn off the stove and let the sage leaves sit. I usually put them in a small tupperware container so they can cool down. Once they're cool you will squeeze the liquid out of them, you can put the liquid on gauze and cover your boil, or just apply topically. I use gauze because the sage extract doesn't dry up and it will continue to soothe the boil/abscess.
Did sage work for diabetic type 2?
i am using sage leaves tea sometimes when i feel not confortable after having lunch or dinner ; and really i feel very good after that ;specially when i take it with honey.
A friend gifted me a box of sage tea (bags),Â it is delicious! I think I've found a new favorite herb tea!Â
I have read the many reviews posted re sage and I was wondering if a doctor could advise me. I have had breast cancer twice with chemo, radio and a double mastectomy. I am on aromasin for this. For the menopause symptoms, although I am not depressed I am on efexor. I have also been diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis and am on entocort. I have heard of sage capsules to help with the many symtoms of menopause. Sleepless nights, sweating, the list goes on. I would like to go off the efexsor and my question is, can I take sage capsules with the above medications that I am on safely?
I had the most terrible pmt throughout my life, and when the menopause started I thought I was going mad! then I read in a magazine about Sage leaf capsules, so decided to give them a try, Well I can report that I have been taking 4 capsules a day for the last 6Â months and it has changed my life!! No sweats, no depression or anxiety, my teeth and gums are healthier and I now sleep like a log after having insomnia for years. I cant recommend sage leaf enough. I take 285mg rapid release capsules. I think they would be better and more convenient to take than tea. I wish I had heard about them years ago.
Glad hear a comment like this iam going start uses myself because iam getting out control my self iam never sleep since i was a little child now iam 57 I need a miracle before is to late hopefully this work for me
I had a severe cough, much like bronchitis, hadÂ visitedÂ many doctors, specialists...2 alergists...Dr. OzÂ suggested anyoneÂ w/excess mucusÂ should useÂ Oil of Sage,Â IÂ thought that was my problem all along, so I got some and used it. W/inÂ 5 daysÂ I stopped coughing.Â Â IÂ quit takingÂ the sageÂ andÂ 5 mos later the cough is back, so I am takingÂ Sage againÂ and will notÂ stop using it.Â MiracleÂ drug for me.
Hi this is my first time trying SageÂ Tea. I'm excitited about the outcome on how the Sage Tea works.Â Â
Herbal medicines have very few or no side effects, when used in
appropriate dosages. Rarely, the herb could lead to headache or a
stomach upset. Over-dose of medicines could lead to serious health
issues and even death.

I am almost 54 and have suffered from pmt all my life, with too many symptoms to mention. I started the perimenopause at 50 andÂ felt I was going mad. I had night sweats to contend with as well as everything else that goes with it. I tried everthing on the market, nothing worked. UNTIL, one day 6 months ago i saw an article about Sage leaf pills and decided to try them. I can say this honestly that since I have taken them 4 times a day 285mg, 2 in the morning and 2 before bed, my symptoms have disappeared. I cant believe it. I feel like a totally different person. No more moods, sweats, I slep like a log whereas before i was awake half the night, I cant recommend
sage enough. I dont know if the tea is any good as i am happy enough on the pills. My skin is clear too. So many good benefits. I cant praise them highly enough, neither can my husband!
thx for telling of your experience I found it to be helpful thx
I love Rishi Tea-- Bergamot Sage.
I was having problems with an external candida infection, and decided to give Lady Soma a try. Â They have the "Lady Soma Candida Advance Cleanse". They did seem to help clear the infection up faster. It's important to attack both the candida inside and outside when you're trying to get rid of an infection.Â
Surprisingly, most people have candida in their systems, but don't notice any symptoms. Even if you don't end up with itching, flaking, redness, or other external systems, candida can be causing your body problems on the inside and contributing to variety of symptoms many people never guess could be from bad intestinal flora (digestive issues, skin problems, trouble concentrating, constant tiredness, anxiety, mood swings, OCD, irritability, headaches, cravings for sweets, difficulty losing weight, etc.). The Lady Soma Candida Pills are an easy way to help your body win the fight against candida and get a healthy balance of good intestinal flora back in its place. Also, for any of you trying to fight it on the outside as well as the inside, I recommend this.
It stops vomiting after being chewed or drunk as tea- warm.
It is good for spinal cord and for nerves.
Very good for digestion and heart burning.
While typing this I'm chewing on fresh sage leaves.
I'm doing that after a double extraction and possibly to save myself from an eventual apical resection.
It's really calming the pain and, a good while ago, made a pretty big difference while akin on an abscess.
The idea is to chew a leave or two and keep them on the gums, moving and massaging around from time to time for a couple of minutes. (make it 20 or 30 mins )
It looks as effective as garlic but without the garlic associated pain ;)Â
it stops vomiting immediately.
it is good for neuro problems. Good for relieving mensuration problems.
good for digestion problems.
Boil a cup of water first then put a tea spoon of sage leaves and leave on stove for one minute only then put off the stove, then leave it for 5 minutes ,sieve it and drink with or w/o sugar.
Boiling sage directly from the beginning will lose some volatile oil.
i just leftÂ my tea leaf reader and got a twine of sage which i should light and walk around the house to clean and have positive energyÂ
How can you use the sage?
Like you can only make teas?
my reason for asking was because I'm not sure if I should try making a tea incase I have a bad reaction
I've got the worst case of the runs ever and was wanting to try some sage tea. From your writing it seems to cleanse the gut or alimentary canal of harmful bacteria and parasites. I'm growing sage on my window sill I know it is also known as silvia and can produce a euphoric high if inhaled rather than ingested. Than again it can produce paranoid thoughts and hallucinations so maybe best to stir clear off.
Wrong Salvia dude. The one you are speaking of is now a controlled substance in many areas. Due to the problems with people like you wanting to use it for getting high. Not smart really. Nothing is so bad that you would need to escape it through a hallucinogen. Clear mind, Clear thoughts rule the day.
Robert Macdonald, Sage you buy for cooking, medicinal, menopause and general use etc. is Salvia Officinalis. The halluconegenic properties you describe are from a different plant entirely, Salvia divinorum. Please don't start scaremongering about paranoid thoughts etc. when you don't have the correct information.
You can smoke sage for euphoria too.
trying it now in conjunction with valerian for spasmodic cough will update!
i like this. works well.
but where are the resources for this so i can learn more about it...
