Product Overview

Sage has been recommended for virutally every possible condition over the years from the Greeks who thought it improved memory, the American colonialists who used it for seasickness and epilepsy to the Arab physicians of the 10th century who suggested Sage could actually help achieve immortality! It is no wonder then that the name Sage, and its Latin genus, Salvia, means ‘to heal’. Modern herbalists are a bit more specific in listing its properties although, including its use in the kitchen, Sage is certainly a very useful herb.

What is it used for?

  • Some studies suggest Sage oil is an effective antiperspirant
  • Like Rosemary, Sage also contains powerful antioxidants that can stop meat fat oxidising and spoiling so when including in burgers or salads it might help avoid food poisoning
  • Some herbalists recommend gargling a sore throat or tonsillitis with hot water and sage. This might be effective due to the tannins contained in sage which are astringent
