Used by centaurs to assist in their stargazing

Sage is a herb used by centaurs, along with Mallowsweet, to assist in their stargazing. They burnt the herb and observed the flames and fumes.

Behind the scenes

  • Salvia and "sage" are derived from the Latin salvere (to save), referring to the healing properties long attributed to the various Salvia species. Modern evidence shows possible uses as an antisweating agent, antibiotic, antifungal, astringent, antispasmodic, estrogenic, hypoglycemic, and tonic.[1]
  • Sage is also a known root that is used in witchcraft and Paganism to banish negative spirits.
