Sage | What's that?

Sage (Salvia officinalis) originated in the Mediterranean, but also grows well in Switzerland. It is a member of the Lamiaceae family, and is also known as common sage or garden sage. It is normally picked before or after the flowering season, in May or September.

The name ‘Salvia’ comes from the Latin ‘salvare’, meaning ‘to heal’. Rosemary was used to treat stomach-related problems, toothache and asthma as far back as ancient Egypt. It also helps with a sore throat and is highly recommended for throat inflammations of any kind.
