Meine 5 TIPPS für ein gesundes Leben mit Salbei

My 5 TIPS for a healthy life with sage

The sage leaf is so rich in good ingredients that we can use it in a variety of ways. I would like to tell you about 5 of these possibilities today.

The great thing about sage is that it is very rich in vitamins (vitamin C and vitamin B3) and minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium).

Its true speciality is the many essential oils (thujone, camphor, linear) that it combines. This gives sage antibacterial, antiviral and antitumor properties.

Sage owes its healing power to the bitter substance SALVIN.

1. INSECT BITES

Take a handful of fresh sage leaves and cover them with water in a pot, simmering the whole thing on a low heat for about 2-3 minutes. Then place the still warm leaves on the affected areas and fix them with a gauze bandage. After 1-2 hours of exposure, the leaves will develop their full effect.

2. DENTAL CARE & ORAL HYGIENE

Chewing 1-2 fresh sage leaves after every meal is not only good for your digestion and fresh breath, it also cleans your teeth and strengthens your gums. It is also said to whiten your teeth.

3. SORE THROAT

Who doesn't know that slight scratchy throat in the transition period? Or after a stressful day in which you had to talk a lot? A glass of sage tea can help. To do this, take 3-4 fresh sage leaves and pour hot water over them. Let the leaves steep for about 10-15 minutes and then remove them from the tea. If you leave the leaves in for too long, the tea will become very bitter. If you don't like the slightly bitter taste that the tea already has, you can soften it with a little honey.

4. FOR A FLAT STOMACH

Sage is said to aid digestion, so it can improve your gut feeling. Pour hot water over 3-5 fresh sage leaves and let it steep for 5 minutes, then add lemon juice, depending on your personal taste. Drink a cup of this hot tea every morning on an empty stomach to wake up your digestive system.

5. HAIR DYE

This tip is only suitable for dark-haired types and is of course not as intense as a conventional tint, but with repeated use over a longer period of time you can still achieve good results. At least according to my research. I have tried all the other tips, but with my black hair this tip is not really feasible because the hair will only turn a darker brown at most.

For the tint, you need 50 milliliters of sage tea, 50 milliliters of black tea and 6 drops of rosemary oil. It is best to put these 3 ingredients in a spray bottle for better dosing. Spray the tint onto your freshly washed hair and then massage it well into your hair. Let your hair dry and rinse the tint out with water. If the result is not yet as intense as you want, you can repeat the tinting process until you are happy with the color.

After a few weeks the result will fade and you can dye your hair again.

If you have any further tips or experiences about sage, I would be happy if you write to me.
