Medicinal Uses...

The use of sage stretches back thousands of years, where it's been used for healing, medicinal, culinary and ceremonial purposes.

The ancient Chinese used it in their traditional medicine, the Greeks used it to treat ulcers and snake bites, and the Romans, who probably introduced it to Europe, used it as a diuretic.

In the Middle Ages it was used, probably unsuccessfully, to ward off the plague!

But of course today it's the culinary uses we're interested in, and the potent chopped leaves are great for cooking.

For external use, sage essential oil also has many uses; particularly in aromatherapy and massage. For internal use you can even make a healthy tea with it. (recipe above)
