This Russian Sage Tincture has been handcrafted from start to finish.
I foraged the Organic Grown Russian Sage from our Dear Neighbor here in Annandale, N.J. Then stripped all the flowers off the stems to soak. Since the leaves are known to have a slight toxin in them (although very fragrant), I only used the flowers which are in fact edible. The flowers have been used in salads, as a pepper alternative (as it has a peppery taste), and to infuse into vodkas. The leaves are good for use in a potpourri.
I do not make any claims that this tincture will do anything for you, as I am not a doctor.
I did however want to lead you in the path of education.
Russian sage scientifically known as Perovskia atriplicifolia is a deciduous woody shrub in the mint family (Lamiaceae).
The following are different Ancient Traditional uses for Russian Sage.
- Russian sage tea or tincture can help relieve a sinus or barometric-pressure headache and dispel gas and bloating that may follow overindulgence or a heavy meal.
- The plant is used as a cooling medicine in the treatment of fevers.
- It is named after a Russian general who discovered the plant as he led his army into Afghanistan in the mid-1800s. It is said that these soldiers brewed Russian sage into a tea to treat fevers, learning this skill from the local peoples.
- In many Asian cultures, this variety has been used to treat stomach ailments including dysentery.
Understanding the plants that live among us is an important part of our ancient history. What others used for what, and why. Please remember that You are unique, and many factors come into play when incorporating magical plants into your life. A whole body focused experience starts with connection to oneself.
I hope you Love this meticulously handcrafted Russian Sage Tincture.
