Medicinal Recipe: Sage Tea

Sage tea will calm your frazzled nerves, provide relief to aching gums, help heal a sore throat -- and it even offers a reliable reprieve from hot flashes. Making the tea is easy:

Sage Tea Recipe

Pour eight ounces of boiling water over ten large, fresh, sage leaves (or a heaping teaspoon of dried sage). Steep for five minutes and strain.

Sage tea may taste bitter. Sweeten it with sugar, honey, or home grown stevia. You can also combine sage with a favorite black tea (Earl Grey or English Breakfast, etc.).

Note: Avoid using sage tea medicinally if you're pregnant.
