🌿 a wisdom welcoming herb 🌿
HERE'S THE SCOOP:
The scientific name for sage is Salvia, which comes from the Latin word Salveo, “to heal” or “to save.” Sage belongs to the mint family, alongside other herbs like rosemary, oregano, basil, and thyme. The Romans regarded sage as a holy herb and used it to clean their teeth because of its antibacterial properties! According to traditional Celtic lore, sage symbolizes wisdom, as they believed eating it improved memory and opened the mind.
