Hi folks, I now grow sage in my garden and it does spread itself out a bit too much for my liking, but hearing the other day that our ancestors used it as a medicine I thought I’d look it up and was pleasantly surprised.
I use sage out of the garden. Yesterday I cooked mackeral with red pepper, sweetcorn on leaves of sage. I also eat two types of fennel leaves and parsley first thing in the morning out of the garden. The fennel is very large at the moment. I grow sorrel to eat most days as a salad or vegetable and include chives (not all the time as they are not on my have every day list), rosemary sometimes, mint, lemon mint for its aroma, then just finished for the season I eat redcurrants and blackcurrants in the morning, all out of the garden. They are all on my good list. There are not massive amounts of plants in my garden but I make sure that there is some herb or other available all year round.

A Final Word of Warning: Although there is not a measurable amount of oxalates or purines, nor is sage considered a typically allergenic herb, it is still in the mint family, so those who suffer from allergic reactions to members of that broad plant family should still consult a doctor before adding it to your dietary or supplementation regimen.
