Product Description

Sage Leaf Powder

Also Known As – Salvia officinalis L

Organically Grown - USA

Overview - Sage, as its name implies, is said to carry powers of wisdom, as well as longevity. It was considered a valuable commodity in 17th century China, when merchants would trade 3 or 4 chests of tea for one chest full of sage.

  • Sage is known as a cure-all. Native Americans mixed the herb with bear grease to create an all-purpose salve.
  • Sage tea mixed with vinegar was given during the time of the plague.
  • The botanical name (Salvia officinalis) is derived from salvere, meaning “to be in good health.” In former times, sage was regarded as a sacred herb, often referred to as Salvia salvatrix, meaning “Sage the Savior.”
  • In Cyprus and Egypt, after a great plague, the women were forced to drink sage juice, to cause them to be more fruitful.
  • An ancient Chinese proverb says, “How can a man grow old who has sage in his garden”.

Medicinal Uses - Sage could almost be called a cure all. Sage acts as an antiseptic and soothes coughs and colds, flu, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, swollen glands, laryngitis, consumption, blood cleanser, laxative, increases menstrual flow, a relaxant for nervous disorders, headaches, and fevers, spermatorrhea, hair loss, calms nervousness, prevents night sweats, expels worms, treats quinsy, palsy, used in liver and kidney troubles, inflammations, typhoid, scarlet fever, measles, smallpox, soothes nervous troubles, relieves headaches.
