Sage Tea Recipe (Relives Cold, Sore Throats, and Cold Sores, Good for Tummy Aches too)
1 ounce sage leaves
3/4 ounce fennel seeds
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 1/2 teaspoon of this mixture and steep. Use as a gargle for flu and inflamed throat. Drink as a tea for any infections of the mouth and throat. The fennel gives the tea a sweet, mile, licorice-like flavor and helps digestion.
