Sage is widely known for its helpful benefits with both nursing mothers (to help dry up breastmilk production) as well as women experiencing menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. Here's more...
Lactation: Sage is one of the most effective herbs for drying up breastmilk, which is helpful during weaning or for correcting over-production. Breastmilk over-production can lead to the following:
- engorgement (engorgement on day 3 postpartum when the milk comes in is typical and normal. This usually normalizes within a day or two, but if it persists or poses difficulty with breastfeeding, or leads to the following issues, Sage use may be appropriate.)
- plugged ducts
Menopause: Sage is one of the most effective herbs for helping alleviate hot flashes in menopausal or peri-menopausal women and can be used as the need arises. When used in conjunction with Black Cohosh, it can eliminate hot flashes and night sweats altogether in most women. Note: A consultation with our herbalist is recommended, however, to ensure these are the most appropriate herbs for your particular situation.
