    I've heard that it does, and I've also heard that it makes more milk! Anybody know which it is? :?

    I've heard, too, that sage helps with dry off. Parsley as well.

    I've read that parsley is supposed to be good for udder edema -last summer we had a break out and the girls headed straight to my small herb garden where they promptly sheared off the parsley (curly style) and the chives but didn't touch anything else, including sage -but of course I think they smelled that brand new rose bush I planted -poor thing was pruned too much!!!

    Modern herbalists recommend sage externally for wounds and insect bits, as a gargle for bleeding gums, sore throat, laryngitis, tonsillitis, and in infusion to reduce perspiration, terminate milk production, and treat dizziness, depression, minstral irregularity and intestinal upsets.
