The Power of Sage

Exploring the healing properties of sage and its role in traditional and modern medicine, we find that it is directly linked to human health and well-being.

Cretan sage, known scientifically as “Salvia fruticosa” is a plant with wide use in both traditional medicine and herbal medicine. The species name “salvia” is derived from the Latin word “salvare,” meaning “to save” or “to heal,” reflecting the healing properties of this distinctive herb. The ancient Greeks and Romans considered it a symbol of longevity and good health.
