Common Sage Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Sage Essential Oil, also called Common Sage Oil and Dalmatian Sage Oil, is steam distilled from the fresh leaves of the Salvia officinalis perennial herb native to the Mediterranean region. Also known as Garden Sage, True Sage and Culinary Sage, this herb gets its name from the Latin word
salvere, which means
salvation, and is best known for its therapeutic properties.
Although many Americans know Common Sage as the dried herb that gives Thanksgiving stuffing its distinctive flavor, this is a herb of ancient repute, valued as both a culinary and medicinal plant. Sage, which takes its name from Latin salvere,
to save, has a long history as a medicinal plant and was listed as such in Theophratus works. It was much in evidence in Roman times, again for medicinal purposes, but was well established mainly as a culinary herb in medieval England.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
The drying nature of the Sage Oil makes it an ideal choice for stimulating and balancing the nerves, alleviating dampness in over-exercised muscles, airways, and for skin issues resulting from excess perspiration. Sage Oil is also known for beautifying the skin, renowned as a natural regulator of sebum, and can be applied to equal effect on mature and youthful skin due to its balancing effect on both skin types.
Dalmatian Sage Essential Oil is also excellent in aiding memory function and general cognition enhancement. Sage Dalmatian Oil can also be blended in massage oil for use on the tummy to help relieve painful menstruation. In natural perfumery, Common Sage Essential Oil is used in making fougeres, colognes, herbal notes, chypres, men's aromas, and sacred perfumes and incenses. Emotionally and energetically, Sage Oil has cooling and drying energy to help relax the mind, soothe anxiety and depression, and to evoke calmness and composure.
