History shows that sage has been used since the first century by the Greek physician Dioscorides for the relief of mouth and throat disorders. Its name is derived from the Latin 'salvere' (to be saved). Historical use of sage can be attributed to its thujone-rich essential oil which has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral actions. It is included in many gastrointestinal remedies for the relief of indigestion symptoms such as bloating, fullness, heartburn, abdominal pain and nausea.
Studies have shown that sage tea can help reduce excessive perspiration making it useful for night sweats. Gargling relieves symptoms of laryngitis, tonsillitis, sore throats, painful gums and mouth ulcers. I have included sage in my teabag range in its recommended therapeutic strength.
