Salvia triloba, sometimes known as Greek sage, is a Mediterranean native. It grows naturally and abundantly in Crete, and this one comes from Psiloritis Mountain. Salvia is derived from the Latin word" salvere", which means "to be healed" or "to cure."

For thousands of years, sage has been a key component of traditional medicine. Sage has been used traditionally by herbalists to treat a broad range of diseases and problems, including swelling, and infection, or used for pain reduction, and even for memory improvement.

Sage tea has been praised for its potential to aid digestion, prevent diarrhea, and bring comfort to women suffering from severe menstrual cramps. It's even been used to ease discomfort linked with sore throats, bleeding gums, and mouth-related ulcers when prepared as a gargle or mouth wash – and these are just some of the traditional therapeutic perks and applications.

Some of the documented sage advantages in contemporary medicine include assisting with Alzheimer's and dementia, treating diabetic symptoms, balancing cholesterol, combatting obesity, managing menopausal symptoms, and easing diarrhea.
Sage advantages also include providing an excellent garden addition, eliminating garden pests, and attracting pollinators.
You may also burn sage to enhance your mood, use it in cleaning goods, add it to bath salts, and use a sage essential oil on your skin.

It is also well-known for its culinary applications, and it is a favorite among kitchen herbalists all over the world for a range of dishes and cuisines. In Western cooking, it is used for flavoring fatty meats (especially as a marinade), cheeses, and some drinks. Sage is also used with onion for poultry or pork stuffing and also in sauces.
