Sage is a Mediterranean herb in the mint family that most Americans are familiar with as seasoning for Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. The plant's history is much older than that of the New World, however, and is still a favorite ornamental and culinary herb in many Old World gardens and pantries. Its name literally translates to "prophet" or "wise one." Some etymologists speculate that this is because its branching can resemble a candelabra, and instrument that sheds light on what is hidden or unknown. In any case, this symbol of wisdom is as useful in tea blends, body powders, dental products and hair rinses as it is in poultry and stuffing seasoning.
