Officinal Sage

Sage officinale is a perennial sub-shrub from the Mediterranean coast, which grows on dry, stony and sunny ground. Its oval, grey-green leaves are rough but more velvety on their lower part. This plant, "saving" according to its Latin etymology, has been used since antiquity. It decorates gardens with its blue-violet flowers. Its essential oil has herbaceous, slightly resinous and tonic fragrances.
