Episode Summary

There are sooooo many benefits of the sage herb! In the United States, the sage herb often gets ignored except as a tasty addition to the Thanksgiving stuffing. But there are lots of reasons to love the sage herb every day of the year.

In this episode, I share my love of sage, including sage tea benefits. You’ll also receive a yummy sore throat relief recipe featuring sage and lemon. Sage (Salvia officinalis) is so amazing for a sore throat! It’s been shown to be even more effective and have more benefits than pharmaceuticals.

After listening in, you’ll know:

► What is so interesting (and quite unique) about the sage herb’s energetics

► Why working with sage may improve your memory and mood

► What makes sage such a powerful potential ally for oral health

► Why you may just fall in love with sage if you’re perimenopausal or menopausal 

The answers to so many of our modern day health problems – whether it’s chronic inflammation, cognitive decline, or even poor digestion – can be found in a cup of sage tea.
