Possible side effects & interactions

The toxin (Thujone) present in raw sage evaporates after 5 minutes of cooking and does not cause side effects when adhering to doses. If overdosed, the thujone would cause convulsions.

Sage may be unsafe when taken by mouth in high doses or for a long time.

Avoid using sage during pregnancy.

Our plants are harvested during particular seasons, times of the day and according to the lunar calendar to ensure the plants or parts of it have the highest nutritional value. For example, roots are picked on a waning moon. Once harvested, they are packaged by hand because we try to avoid using metal equipment and utensils that could reduce the beneficial properties of the plant.

Because these products do contain active ingredients, please ensure that you do not exceed the recommended doses and if in any doubt, or if you experience any side effects – however slight – please consult your doctor or healthcare professional.
