The Druids believed so strongly in sage’s healing properties, they thought it could bring the dead back to life, while tea made from crushed sage leaves was said to improve both memory and prudence. Sage was also thought to counteract the indigestion caused by such rich foods as sausage or fatty poultry, and thus it became a regular ingredient in these recipes. As with all herbs, Crushed Sage Leaves are lightweight while being high in volume. For example, the 4 oz. size will fill a quart size plastic bag while the 8 oz. size will a 1-gallon bag. We recommend the 1 oz. size to most of our customers. We also carry Organic Rubbed Sage.
