Teeth whitening and face cleansing

Sage is a great teeth whitening and anti-bacterial treatment. You can use it along with baking soda, or alternate the two treatments. Rub a sage leaf on your teeth 1 or 2 times a week, and repeat once a month for a whitening result.

You can use this plant to make a astringent and purifying tonic. Boil half a cup of water, then add 3 sage leaves and a sprig of rosemary. Leave to infuse for about 5 minutes and filter it. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, the juice of an orange and a lemon to enhance its astringent power.

Sage is great for your digestion. Make a herbal tea by boiling some water and adding bay leaves and rosemary. Alternatively, add dandelion, which has remarkable digestive and cleansing properties. This drink will relax your stomach and intestine.
