Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Description

Rue was once called the "Herb of Grace" and was included along with garlic in the "Vinegar of the Four Thieves" during the plague. Rue was once an officially recognized treatment for hypertension, diabetes, and allergic reactions. It's primary reputation is that of an anti-spasmodic to smooth muscles. It is still a popular folk medicine in countries like Mexico, Lebanon, Iran, India and China. In traditional Chinese medicine, the leaves are applied to reduce inflammation from snakebites, insect bites, strain, and sprains. Used after Arnica has been tried. Not to be used during pregnancy, as it is uterine stimulant. It can cause contact dermatitis after handling the fresh plant. Hardy to zone 4.
