Spice Route Sage - the healing herb
Salvia officinalis

Sage is the silvery-gray dried leaf of an evergreen shrub of the mint family. It is known to have originated in Dalmatia, a region on the shores of the Adriatic Sea in Yugoslavia. It has the same pungency level of Thyme and Rosemary with an aroma that is fresh and head clearing. Garden Sage is the most widely used variety today.

Sage obtains its name from 'Salvere'- meaning to save or to heal. Its pungent properties are known to have excellent therapeutic effects.

SageSage grown in our farms are harvested and dried using a unique process to retain the volatile oils and aroma.

Sage goes well with soups, stew, meats, pork, duck preparations and most foods that are cooked for a long time.
