The Satureja Hortensis, or Summer Savory, like the sage, is an excitant diaphoretic, if used in the form of warm infusion. It is more exciting than the latter article, but employed in pretty much the same cases and in the same way. In the early stages of febrile and inflammatory diseases, colds, pulmonary catarrhs, etc., the warm infusion, aided by other suitable means, is capable of producing free sweating, and often effectually breaking up the attack. It is but little used.
