This is a simple tea for hot flashes and night sweats that contains sage and raspberry leaves. It is not known why sage leaves reduce sweating, perhaps due to its astringent properties. (An astringent is something that causes body tissues to tighten or shrink). Raspberry leaves are traditionally used to balance female hormones. Prepare this tea fresh before drinking.
1/2 tbsp fresh sage leaves (if you use dry leaves, use half the amount)
1/2 tbsp fresh raspberry leaves (if you use dry leaves, use half the amount)
8 ounces freshly boiled water
Stevia/honey/maple syrup to taste
Wash the sage and raspberry leaves, pour the boiled water over and steep for 8-10 minutes. Sip a small glass every 3 hours.
