Feeding Herbs - Sage

This is another mediterranean plant, which is relatively easy to grow.  It also has a  pleasant smell and is used for quite a few different situations.  It is another herb I have in my garden! 

Sage should not be fed to pregnant mares as it reduces lactation.  It is a useful herb for gastro-intestinal disorders so it could be a good herb for me to add to Basil's feed.  See my Stomach Ulcers blog

See my

Part Used:

Good for coughs, colds and for nervous conditions.  In addition to its uses for gastro-intestinal disorders it is also used for wind colic and mouth infections! 

20 - 30gms added to feed daily.
