Sage

Sage is a perennial shrub plant, known since antiquity. It is a herb gifted with many therapeutic substances and properties such as antibacterial, antiseptic, cardiotonic, spasmolytic and antidiabetic, widely used in medicine.

As a decoction, it is ideal for the treatment of pharyngitis, gingivitis, and sprues as well as various oral injuries.

The ancient Greeks used it as a multi-drug and were chased by Dioskouridis, Galenos, Aetos and Hippocrates.

The Arabs believed it could cure everything. The Latins considered it the sacred plant of immortality and used it in rituals. The French call it “Greek Tea” and use it – like other Europeans – in cooking as well as forits healing properties.
