Sage Materia Medica


Sage has long been revered for its medicinal virtues. The word Salvia is derived from the Latin, salvus, meaning “safe and sound” and related to the word salvare, meaning “to save.”

In earlier times, herbalists used sage to staunch bleeding wounds and cleanse foul skin ulcers and sores. Sage was also found to be of especially good service for counteracting excessive urination, salivation and perspiration as well as for drying up the secretion of breast milk. Additionally it was considered to be a useful diuretic and emmenagogue (agent
which helps initiate menstruation) and was used by physicians to induce the uterus to expel a dead fetus.
