What is Sage oil?
We are very pleased to offer this organic Sage, without doubt one of the best we have ever sourced. The quality of this remarkable Sage essential oil is revealed in the exact expression of its predominant chemotype characteristics and properties, and even more so, in the quality of its aroma. It is sparkling, crystalline and jewel-like in its ethereal clarity, affirming the presence of the plant’s most precious components – even the most volatile molecules – captured in liquid form.
Sage Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Salvia officinalis herb, also referred to as Common Sage, True Sage, Garden Sage, and Dalmatian Sage. The latter nickname is due to the fact that most of the world’s Sage grows wild in the region of Dalmatia. The name Sage is derived from the Latin “salvere,” meaning “to save,” as its benefits have historically been known to “save” the user’s general health – both emotional and physical. Its beneficial uses included applications for fungal ailments and respiratory conditions. In the Middle Ages, Sage earned the nickname “Sage the Savior” for its countless valuable properties, while the community of Lakota Indians nicknamed it “master herb” for its cleansing and nerve tonic properties.
Sage Essential Oil is commonly mistaken for Clary Sage Essential Oil, which is derived from the Salvia sclarea herb; however, despite belonging to the same family of evergreen shrubs, these two herbs and their resultant oils differ from each other. Although both oils smell herbaceous, the scent of Sage is robust and piquant, while the scent of Clary Sage has a softer, sweeter profile, exuding floral, earthy, and nutty tones with a fruity nuance.
Though Sage Oil has historically been used largely to address complaints related to digestion, it continues to be used in a vast array of versatile applications including skin care, hair care, overall health care, and in the making of cosmetics and fragrant soaps.
