This old herb is native to the
Mediterranean region and is cultivated everywhere else. Folk remedies
have a use of sage tea to reduce perspiration, as a gargle or mouthwash.
It helps heal mouth sores, sensitive gums, etc. The essential oils in
sage are antimicrobial and could be why sage is used in cooking meats,
primarily pork! Tea of sage is also used sometimes with rosemary as a
hair rinse to clean hair follicles and encourage hair growth.
