Sage has many cullinary uses. It has a strong flavour that increases when the herb is dried. When cooking, use sparingly to flavour meats and note that it will aid in the digestion of fatty meats.
Tea made from sage leaves is an antiseptic nerve and blood tonic. It can aid in irregular menstrual periods and menopause.
Sage is a very important herb in a Witch’s garden. When used as a smudge stick, it is used to cleanse and purify spaces and to clear out negative energies.
In Witchcraft, sage is also used in spell work for purification, protection, wisdom, longevity, and wishes.
