Most of us think of sage as the “Thanksgiving herb” because it is featured in just about every savory stuffing recipe there is. But sage leaf offers so much more. The herb is a pleasant addition to tea blends and, thanks to high concentrations of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial phenolic compounds like rosmarinic acid, sage leaf moves from the kitchen spice rack to the home apothecary.

Aside from its commercial use as a food additive and preservative, sage leaf is also used in the pharmaceutical, skin care, household care and aromatherapy industries.
