My clary sage is growing like crazy.
You can use it like ordinary sage in cooking, though it is stronger, so use less. You can also eat the flowers. It is traditionally used for women’s problems, particularly the menopause and its hot flushes. Take as a tea. The astringent tea can also be gargled for sore throats or poured over small wounds. The tea is also good for digestive complaints such as gas and bloating. Also use the tea as an eyewash.
You can make a wine from it, which is said to be slightly narcotic. People also used to consider it to be an aphrodisiac.
