How's it growing? Were you able to enjoy a fresh herb garden this summer? Nothing beats cooking a delicious meal with the freshest herbs possible! This year we're enjoying an exciting new addition at the Secret Garden! Earlier this spring, over 1,100 herbs were planted in our garden oasis! The three perennial herbs that were planted are sage, peppermint and lemon balm. Of those herbs, sage is my personal favorite. This herb, though not the most popular, has so many amazing properties and uses! During my research I was blown away by how versatile, delicious and timeless sage is! Read about our favorite tips and facts and share yours with us! Stay tuned for a future newsletter with photos of our first distillation of the 3 herbs into essential oils!
Health Benefits of Sage
Sage is loaded with great vitamins and nutrients that are essential for your body. This amazing herb has been used for centuries around the world. Ancient cultures, like the Egyptians, discovered what this herb has to offer and utilized its properties to treat stomach and digestive issues, menstrual cramps, heartburn, gingivitis and even asthma when ingested! But wait there's more! Sage is also great when applied topically! Sage essential oil can strengthen you hair, keep you skin healthy and wards off acne and blemishes. Sage is commonly used in Native American cleansing traditions. It is thought that burning sage creates a more healthy, positive atmosphere.
