Sage Spice Health Benefits EasyLebaneseRecipes


Sage is a strong antioxidant and an Anti-Inflammatory,  as well as an Anti-Microbial, and a Booster of Energy and Memory. That in addition to its long list of health benefits that earned it, in ancient Mediterranean, the Latin name of Sage: to be in good health.

Sage Leaves Health BenefitsSage is an aromatic leaf ingredient that enhances dishes of beef, chicken, turkey, pasta, and specially fatty meats.

In the Lebanese cuisine, it is called Meraymyeh, and is used in various recipes as well as a herbal tea. We also use it in the boiling process of the chicken, along with a stick of Cinnamon, in order to cleanse it, and remove any stinky taste from it.

Interesting enough, our grand-mothers used it as a beauty product to clean their faces and gain a glowing youth-like skin. They would boil water, soak in Sage leaves for 1-2 hours, then use the liquid same day on their faces and leave it to dry.
