Sage is native to the Mediterranean region, where it first became popularized in ancient times for its healing properties and values, such as treating snakebites, increasing women‰۪s fertility, and even being believed to be part of a secret herb mix used to ward off the plague. Today, sage has been neutralized in many parts of the world, and has taken a critical role in culinary preparations and cuisines, spreading from it‰۪s roots in the Mediterranean to all around the globe.
