    Comments:   Sage's popularity peaked during Middle Ages. Sage elixirs were bottled and sold throughout Europe. There was a Latin proverb "why should a man die while sage grows in his garden?" The physicians used poultice of the pounded leaves for infected wounds, boiled it to wash itching skin conditions and prescribed sage tea for cold. Mexican Americans today use these same remedies. Salvia comes from Latin word salvus, meaning health, to heal. Sage tea is still popular in Greece.
