Sage also works as a salve for wounds. In the kitchen, as a flavoring to soups, stews, and omletts. Sage leaves fried was a traditional chip. A combination of one third oil of sage with one third of rosemary oil, and the burnt ash of the oak apple or the ragged robin works as a hair restorer. The sage can also be used to repel insects, most especially as a companion plant. Questions and answers: Sage as a herb used by native peoples as a way to clear the spiritual atmosphere. But vervain is more effective, in Chadwick's opinion. Wild sage as contrasted to the garden variety. (12:26)
