TO KNOW MORE
The genus Salvia is one of the most widespread members of the family Lamiaceae. Its name derives from the Latin word salvus, meaning health, or salveo, which alludes to the healthy virtues of plants belonging to this genus. About 1,000 species of Sage are distributed from North and South America, through Europe to Asia.
Spanish Sage (Salvia lavandulifolia) is native to the Iberian Peninsula and is found in the western Mediterranean area at altitudes ranging from 300 to over 1000m above sea level. This plant prefers slightly deep, alkaline (basic) soils. Spanish Sage is a small evergreen shrub with woody roots, its leaves grow in clusters opposite the stem and when rubbed, the oils give off a fragrance similar to that of rosemary. The flowers are blue, pink or lilac and grow in short inflorescences (spikes). Spanish Sage is an attractive crop for the phytocosmetic, phytotherapeutic and aromatherapeutic industries.
