An old English proverb says “whoever does not want to die should eat sage in May”. The ancient Greeks used it as the ultimate tonic for the mind and body. The Romans called it a “sacred plant”. Today the flowers and leaves of sage are used in medicinal, perfumes and in many diseases. In a recent experiment in which participants were given sage oil, it was shown that the latter remembered better and dealt with situations with a clearer mind.
