Sage, Organic: Hungary (Salvia fruticosa miller)
Sage is a perennial herb native to the eastern Mediterranean region and has been use therapeutically for thousands of years. The Mediterranean or Greek Sage is quite similar to White Sage that the Native Americans use in their spiritual ceremonies and traditional medicine. Historically Sage was considered divers and “cure all” from whitening the teeth, a spice for flavoring, spiritual usages, strengthening the mind, stopping body trembling, liver disease, anti plague remedy, assist female issues, pain, and so forth. There was a Latin saying of, “Why should a man die whilst there is Sage growing in the garden?”
With hundreds of different species of Sage, you will mostly find on the market the Salvia fruticosa, high in the chemical Cineol and the Salvia officinalis, high in the chemicals of Thujone and Camphor. Both verities of sage should be used in moderation but the Greek Sage is considered more of an overall therapeutic essential oil. Carful distillation is needed to keep the Cineol content lower, around thirty seven percent, and therefore increasing the other therapeutic properties found in the oil.
