SAGE, GARDEN (SALVIA OFFICINALIS)

5.95

Sage is a classic Old World medicinal found in every apothecary garden, and with good reason!   “Why should a man die whilst sage grows in his garden?” goes the famous ancient saying, and the name Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvare, "to heal."   It is as showy as it is useful, and its beautiful grey-green foliage and deep purple spikes of flowers (that the bees love) add texture, depth, and a sense of history to the landscape.  Its uses are many- famous for sore throats, coughs, colds, flus, wounds and infections.  Strong anti-microbial, anti-fungal and digestive bitter.  Especially nice as an herbal infused honey. Of course it is a delicious culinary herb as well, excellent with meat, eggs, fall root vegetables, squash and more.  Use it often in your food to keep your immune system strong. It can be made into a smudge and is known- like its cousin white sage- for dispersing negativity and clearing emotional and spiritual blockages. Prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Hardy, often short-lived, perennial to Zone 5.
