A hardy, small woody shrub with velvety, textured oval green-grey leaves. Sage tolerates most climates however it does not like to be over watered. Requires really good drainage and a slightly alkaline soil. The foliage is used in pot pourii and in natural insecticides.
Add English, Purple, Tricolour, Cleveland and Pineapple Sage to:
• Potpourris, herbal baths, sachets, wreaths, tussie-mussies.
• Use in facial steams and astringent cleansing lotion, and as a rinse to condition and darken grey hair.
• Boil in water to disinfect a room.
• Smudge sticks; Sage smoke deodorizes animal and cooking smells.
