Sage has a long history of importance in many cultures as a culinary and medicinal plant. The oil is made by steam distillation of the partially dried leaves of the plant. Sage is commonly used for its tonifying and cleansing properties, which makes it perfect for hair and skin care applications. As a top note, it blends well with lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, and lemongrass. Sage has a sweet, camphoracous and herbal aroma.
