   Introduction

Sage is an herb with oblong gray-green leaves which are used in cooking and herbal medicine. The herb has a pungent, mildly astringent, slightly bitter to peppery flavor which accents many foods including roasts, soups, savory sauces, and stuffing. The herb is also used in extracts and teas to improve digestive problems and to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Sage extracts and concentrated sage should be avoided by pregnant women, as the herb stimulates uterine contractions, and by people prone to convulsions and seizures, as sage contains a compound which can cause convulsions. Studies have also shown that sage has a compound which may enhance memory, although large amounts of it would need to be consumed.


   Description

 

Sage generally grows about a foot or more high, with wiry stems. The leaves are set in pairs on the stem and are 1 1/2 to 2 inches long, stalked, oblong, rounded at the ends, finely wrinkled by a strongly-marked network of veins on both sides, grayish-green in color, softly hairy and beneath glandular. The flowers are in whorls, purplish and the corollas lipped. They blossom in August. All parts of the plant have a strong, scented odor and a warm, bitter, somewhat astringent taste, due to the volatile oil contained in the tissues.
