Herb Lore Sage Tincture
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 Vitex, it can eliminate hot flashes and night sweats altogether in most women.
NOTE: Not for use by those who are pregnant
Ingredients: Organic Sage Leaf. The regular tincture is extracted in organic grape alcohol and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are non-GMO and are gluten-free.
Suggested Use: For curbing over-production, it is recommended to start with a very low dose of 10-15 drops of tincture twice a day. If this doesn’t bring the desired decrease, continue to slowly increase the amount of herb until the desired balance is achieved. If you find that you’ve taken too much of the herb and it’s decreased your production more than you wanted, just decrease the herb, and your production will bounce right back up. As each body is different and reacts differently, experiment with the dosage levels until you find the right balance for you. Results should become apparent within a day or two.
For weaning purposes, or to stop breastmilk production altogether, it is recommended to start with wo droppersful of tincture three times daily. Increase the dosage levels as necessary to achieve the desired results. Results should be apparent in a day or two.
For alleviating hot flashes, start with two droppersful of the tincture 2-3 times a day. Feel free to adjust this dosage according to results. Everybody’s bodies are all different.
