Sage is derived from Latin word “salvia” meaning “to heal“. It is often used to increase woman’s fertility. Sage is not widely used in aromatherapy because it is reputed toxic as it contains thujone and extremely stimulating to the nervous system. Thujone has been a source of some disagreement, especially within the British School of Aromatherapy because it potentially may have a neurotoxic effect in high dosages if ingested. But, remember, that any product used incorrectly and in high doses may be harmful to the body.
