Medically, it has been used for the fighting of oral and skin infections, improving mental clarity and memory retention, strengthening the immune system and taken as a tonic for supporting balanced metabolic function. The energetics of sage are mainly drying and astringent. It is recommended for nervous exhaustion and as a tonic during convalescence.
