Get ready to infuse your Thanksgiving feast with the aromatic harmony of Sage and Rosemary! 🌿✨

Common Sage (Sai Er Wei Ya) in TCM:

In the realm of TCM, Common Sage goes by the name Sai Er Wei Ya. Imagine a herb with a slightly warm nature, offering a bitter taste that delicately enters the heart, pericardium, and liver channels. Let's explore its remarkable functions:

  1. Tonify Qi: Sai Er Wei Ya becomes a Qi tonic, providing a boost of energy and vitality.

  2. Expel Phlegm: Sai Er Wei Ya helps to clear phlegm, promoting respiratory well-being.

  3. Benefit Uterus: A unique quality of Sai Er Wei Ya is its ability to benefit the uterus, offering support to the reproductive system.

  4. Benefit Skin: Sai Er Wei Ya unfolds its skin-nourishing properties, contributing to a radiant and healthy complexion.

  5. Clear Shen (Mind): Sai Er Wei Ya has a calming influence on the Shen (Mind), promoting emotional balance and tranquility.

However, a word of caution: Large amounts, especially when inappropriately using sage oil, can lead to adverse effects such as vomiting, dizziness, palpitations, seizures, and potential kidney or liver damage!

Rosemary (Mi Die Xiang) in TCM:

In the TCM realm, Rosemary is known as Mi Die Xiang. Picture a herb with a warm nature and a taste that beautifully balances between sweet, acrid, and slightly bitter notes. Rosemary elegantly enters the heart, lung, liver, spleen, and kidney channels. Let's uncover its diverse functions:

  1. Harmonize Qi: Mi Die Xiang takes center stage in harmonizing Qi, promoting balance and well-being.

  2. Promote Digestion: A digestive ally, Mi Die Xiang supports efficient digestion and assimilation of nutrients during your Thanksgiving feast.

  3. Nourish the Heart: Mi Die Xiang unfolds its heart-nourishing properties, contributing to emotional well-being.

  4. Support Lung Health: With its presence in the lung channel, Mi Die Xiang aids in maintaining respiratory vitality.

  5. Tonify Kidney: Mi Die Xiang provides support to the kidneys, promoting overall kidney health.
