The oils and tannins in Sage have astringent, antiseptic, and irritant properties. It is therefore an important herb in medications for mouth sores, mouth irritations, and sore throat medications (make teas and use as a mouth rinse - try a tea with equal parts Chamomile and Sage). For sore throats, try mixing a Sage tea with apple cider vinegar and salt for gargling. Sage is reported to have moisture-drying properties, and can be used as an antiperspirant. It can also be used as a compress on cuts and wounds. Clinical studies have also shown that it can lower blood sugar. Try making capsules out of dried leaves as a substitute for teas for internal use.
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 tea can also be tried in a tea for digestive problems and flatulence.

DO THIS TEA HELP WITH CARPEL TUNNEL SYDRONE IN YOUR HANDS?
Some, but not all, studies have found vitamin B6 deficiency to be common in people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Supplementation with vitamin B6 has reportedly relieved the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Several studies report that people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are helped when given 100 mg of vitamin B6 three times per day. Although some researchers have found benefits with lesser amounts, using less than 100 mg taken three times per day for several months has often failed. Most doctors assume that people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome who respond to vitamin B6 supplementation do so because of an underlying deficiency. However, at least one group of researchers has found vitamin B6 to “dramatically” reduce pain in people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome who did not appear to be B6-deficient. Some doctors believe that B6 is therapeutic because it reduces swelling around the carpal tunnel in the wrist; this theory remains completely undocumented.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
