Sage For Sweating
Sweating can cause you to become extremely dehydrated, so whether it’s a hard day at work or you’re sick, sage tea can help alleviate your symptoms. Sage has astringent properties that can help to reduce excessive sweating by tightening the skin’s pores and reducing the production of sweat. This holy herb contains natural compounds called tannins, which have astringent properties. When sage is brewed into tea, these tannins help to constrict the sweat glands and reduce the production of sweat.
The incredible thing about sage tea is that you can not only ingest it but use it as a topical solution. The ratio of sage to water is 1-2 teaspoons to 1 cup, respectively. Drinking it warm or cool will have the same effect, but allowing to cool and using it as a topical solution will also constrict your sweat glands to where you aren’t losing your electrolytes. Sage does tend to have a smoky and bitter taste, so add honey or lemon to your preference.
