Common desert shrub, yellow flowers, woolly, gray-green leaves. If you’ve ever eaten just one leaf right off the bush, you know how much medicinal power this plant has. A very versatile powerful plant used for all kinds of conditions, both minor and major. A very powerful antiseptic for viruses, bacteria fungus. Used for reversing gray hair and balding spots by making a really strong tea (couple of hours on stove) mixed with black tea and rosemary (rub into head daily). It’s stimulating action encourages hair to regrow if the roots have not been destroyed. If young sage leaves are boiled down to a resin, (until all that’s left is a black goo) they form “black salve” which is applied to skin tumors to remove cancers. Astringent and expectorant qualities great for respiratory infections like bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, fevers, pneumonia, and immune system weakness. Very bitter plant, which makes it great for the liver, creating bile, gallstones, digestive enzymes, heartburn, stomach, colic, colitis, flatulence, worms, menstrual cramps, even infertility. For insect bite or itching, take some leaves and mulch in mouth with saliva and place on itchy spot. Powerful antioxidants help delay the aging process. Sagebrush is not related to common kitchen sage, but has similar qualities. High in concentrated turpenoids and other strong compounds that make it toxic to the liver if consumed for more than a week or two at a time. Simply chewing on on one tiny leaf is enough to activate the liver and stomach to produce digestive juices and power because of the bitter taste. Some tea now and then is ok, but it’s quite nasty and bitter.
