The Chinese also valued sage, and believed it to be a cure for sterility. This savory herb found its way into the kitchen, and was used to flavor meats and other dishes. As an aromatic, sage has a variety of therapeutic uses, from promoting respiratory health to strengthening memory. Sage is also a popular fragrance in perfumes and colognes, especially men's products. It can also be found in soaps, shampoos, detergents, and antiperspirants, as well as mouthwashes, gargles and toothpastes.
