Sacred Incense - Cretan Sage

Leaves, Cut & Sifted, 12 Gr from Greece (SKU 3431)

Finely cut and sifted Cretan Sage leaves. Cretan Sage suits as a wonderful incense, with a fragrance similar to that of the White Sage, Salvia apiana. This herb was sustainably and carefully handpicked from the wild by a dear old friend who lives in the mountains of Crete, area Preveli in Greece. 
Unforunately we put a best before date on these pots of incense so it looks like they are out of date. However, that is not the case and the sage still smells divine! Hence the 50 % discount.

Packed in 60 ml clear plastic pots containing 12 grams.



Due to its wide variation in leaf shape, there has been a great deal of taxonomic confusion over the years, with many of the leaf variations of Salvia fruticosa being named as distinct species. These include S. libanotica, S. triloba, S. lobryana, and S. cypria, which are now considered to be Salvia fruticosa. The variation in leaf depends on geographical area, with plants growing on the western part of Crete having entire leaves with flat blade and margins and dark green upper sides. Plants growing on the eastern side of the island have much smaller leaves, with deeply three-lobed yellowish-green blade and undulate margins. The variation continues throughout different parts of Greece
