Also Known As: Dalmatian Sage, Garden, Greek, Meadow, Spanish
Thousands of years before the pilgrims stuffed the first Thanksgiving turkey adding sage as a spice, people all over the world were celebrating the healing powers of this herb.
Crush fresh leaves and place them into cuts and scrapes after thoroughly washing area.
After boiling a cup of water, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried leaves to the cup of water, steeping for 10 minutes. May drink up to 3 cups a day.
Take up to 1 teaspoon three times a day.
USE: (Grow Your Own)
Use soil that is well drained and plant seeds under full sun. Sow seeds ½ inch deep in the spring time. Water well. After they mature some, they require less water. It will take up to 2 years to fully grow plants that are 3 feet tall. Replace sage every 3 to 4 years because plants will become woody and produce less. Harvest leaves before the flowers bud. Cut the plant back to 4 inches above the ground. Discard stems and stalks. Dry the herb and store it in an airtight container.
