Sage is a kitchen herb that has been used by herbalists for centuries for a number of conditions. Centuries ago sage was very highly regarded and its botanical name Salvia
also suggests its importance. It comes from the latin name Salvare
, to save.
Like rosemary, its sister herb in the mint family, sage contains a variety of volatile oils, flavonoids, and phenolic acids, including the phenolic acid named after rosemary—rosmarinic acid (the ‘active’ compound in sage).
