A perennial evergreen, the leaves of which contain oestrogen-like substances, flavonoids, phenolic acids, tannins and volatile oils (borneol, camphor, cineole, pinene, thujone and others). Sage has a long history of medicinal use and was regarded as a cure-all. It is antibacterial, antispasmodic, carminative and tonic; it has been used for colds, constipation, indigestion, painful menses, hot flashes, as a gargle for sore throat and tonsillitis, and as a poultice for ulcers, sores and skin eruptions. It is believed to improve memory, relax nerves and quell “vicious sexual desires”.

Sage should not be taken during pregnancy or by those with seizures.
