Sage has become popular for many reasons, including its smell, taste, and color. It is a member of the mint family with its extremely aromatic foliage. These smelly leaves are popular for medicinal purposes finding themselves used in many aromatic products such as candles, incense, and herb bundles.

Sage has natural properties allowing it to improve brain health and prevent disease. While it is not a miracle food, it does taste great while offering some health benefits. Sage is naturally high in antioxidants making it a great source of healing and preventing illness.

Beyond physical health benefits, sage is used for healing spiritually and metaphysically through many spiritual practices. For this reason, it is popularly used in herb bundles and religious ceremonies around the world.

If you are not one to practice these traditions, you may instead use sage as a culinary herb. One of my favorite ways to use it is flavoring meats, soups, and stuffing. You may have it stored in your spice cabinet, but have you ever tried using fresh sage? We recommend growing it right from seed along with your other favorite culinary herbs.

If you are new to herb gardens, check out our culinary herb kits to get you started. Once you use fresh herbs from your garden, you may never want to use store-bought herbs again.
