The botanical name for sage is Salvia, which derives from the Latin word Salveo, "to heal" or "to save” and has been associated with good health, longevity and often immortality by virtually every civilisation in history, as attested by the old proverb “Why should a man die who grows sage in his garden?” It was still recommended as a treatment for an array of ailments in medical textbooks as recently as the 1920s. It is said sage can be displayed and burned at funerals and remembrance ceremonies to help relieve the grief of the mourners. It can also be used as smudging stick and an incense to cleanse and purify an area. For a wish to come true, write it on a sage leaf, sleep with it under your pillow for three days, then bury it.
