Sage (Salvia officinalis) is an herb that grows in coastal areas of Mediterranean countries as a perennial small shrub. Because of its widespread use and healing properties has been cultivated in different regions of the world.
The world most known and respected is Dalmatian sage, because of its specific content of essential oil that has the best medical properties and a strong characteristical odour. Dalmatian karst, specific soil, and Mediterranean climate provided the perfect blend of what it needs for its natural growth, so it grows wild along the Dalmatian coast.
For these reasons Dalmatia (Croatia) and it’s islands are considered to be the primordial homeland of the sage.
