Sage

Sage is a member of the mint family. Most are fast growing, hardy, trouble free. The best way to grow sage is to buy a couple plants and take cuttings. If you grow sage from seeds it will take about two years before you can use it. You can freeze your sage and store it in ziploc bags for later use. Add fresh sage to your vegetables for a hint of unique flavor. As an astringent, Sage can be used as a refreshing after-shave, and there is some indication that an infusion of it can be used to subtly color silver hair.  As with many of the other herbs, Sage can also be tried in a tea for digestive problems and flatulence. The oils and tannins in Sage have astringent, antiseptic, and irritant properties. It is therefore an important herb in medications for mouth sores, mouth ulcers, and sore throat medications.
