It is also wise to grow our relationship with Soul, the unique cell of Creator Power in us, and inform others so they can do the same.

Today I want to share a “super-herb” tea recipe that may be able to turn the tables on your cold or flu, in heroic fashion. It’s also wonderful for sore throats.

The leafy celebrity at the heart of this tasty potion is none other than sage, the sacred plant many of us burn routinely in our homes for its aromatic energy-clearing powers. Did you know that it also packs a serious wallop for colds, viruses and bacterial infections?

Also known as Salvia officianalis, sage is an antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti… pretty much anti-anything-that-feels-lousy.

All joking aside, this is a highly medicinal herb that is effective for a host of minor ailments like cold and flu, as well as major ones like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.

Call me an earth medicine nerd, but I get so much joy working with powerful ancient plants like these. They leave modern medicine in the dust, and feel like teachers in your body when you take them!

Below is a delicious sage tea recipe that master herbalists swear by because of its fast-acting effects:

Sage Tea Recipe

*Important: never use aluminum utensils or containers for your tea extractions. Glass, porcelain, silver, and Pyrex are best!


1 Quart Water
12 Fresh Sage Leaves (Dry is ok too, but fresh is more potent!)
2 Tablespoons Local Honey
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
A pinch of Cayenne Pepper


1. In a teapot or saucepan, bring water to a boil.

2. Add the sage leaves and remove the teapot or saucepan from heat.

3. Let steep for 15 minutes.

4. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

5. Pour a cup full, breathe in the beautiful aroma, say a healing blessing, and enjoy!

Two to three cups of sage tea per day is always part of the healing protocol in my house. Sage is generally viewed as being a very safe herb to experiment with, but as always, do your own research and make sure it feels right for you.

Hopefully this information will help you enjoy the fullness of the spring and shed the cobwebs of the cold months.

Stay curious,

The Walipini
© Neo-farms

Not as ancient as the other shelters on this list, the walipini is still worth a mention because it’s such a simple yet brilliant idea, and it can be built for as little as $300.

A walipini is an underground greenhouse that lets you grow food year-round, and the idea was first developed in Bolivia, South America. It uses the same earth sheltering principles as many of the ancient house designs on this list.

What makes the walipini better than hoop houses and green houses? First, by locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground you take advantage of the constant temperature of the earth below the frost level. Second, you can capture and store the daytime solar radiation in the surrounding earth which then radiates back into the greenhouse during the cold winter nights.
