My Name is Common Sage

I am a hardy perennial herb, I return year after year offering healing energy.  I  grow beautiful green leaves that you can add to breads, butter, stuffing, cheeses and meat. My warm homey aroma will give comfort. Put some of my leaves into a cup of boiling water and cover me for 20 minutes, drink to warm you.

You might know me as a culinary spice and use me to prepare poultry for cooking. I also have healing abilities: that cool a fever, improve mental concentration and memory. Did you know that my leaves contain vitamins and minerals?

I am easy to grow and love the sun shinning on me. Patricia, enjoys me in her garden, and when she comes near to visit me, she adds some lady bugs to protect me from pests. She is careful before watering me because I do not like my roots soaked.

Sometimes, Patricia will sit quietly near me and listen with her heart to learn about my healing medicine. She likes to teach others about growing me in their gardens, and using me to bring healing to those they love.

You see, my name Salvia comes from the Latin word Salvere, meaning “to be saved”or “to be healed”. I was sacred to the Greeks and Romans. I hope you will experience my healing wisdom.
