Sage flower plants are multitasking powerhouses with beautiful leaves and pretty flowers in the summer. Most of the time, these plants are grown for their leaves, which can be eaten, and many gardeners pick off the flowers. This makes it more likely for the plant to use its energy to make tender leaves instead of seeds. If you let your plants bloom, cut them back below where the flower stalks began when the blooms died. This will help the plant grow new leaves. Sage flowers can be used in salads and other dishes just like sage leaves, and they add a nice splash of colour.
Sage can be used fresh or dried in the kitchen. It can be added to traditional chicken dishes and stuffing, rubbed on meat before grilling, or mixed into egg or cheese dishes. Sage goes well with vinegars made from fruit, making mixtures with delicate smells and tastes.

Health benefits of sage flower:
Improves Cognitive Functioning:
Sage has been used for a long time as an ancient and traditional way to make the brain work better. Sage has powerful antioxidants that make a person's memory, focus, concentration, calmness, and alertness better. Researchers have found that people who take sage regularly have better memory, reasoning, problem-solving, and other cognitive skills. So, it can be thought of as a brain booster and is very helpful in treating psychotic disorders and diseases like Alzheimer's.
Boosts the immune system and keeps infections away
Sage's strong antibacterial and antimicrobial properties help the body fight off infections and act as a shield by making the immune system stronger. It stops sore throat, cough, and cold symptoms and treats different types of fungal, bacterial, and viral infections. It can also be used as a gargle to treat gum infections, gingivitis, and gums that bleed. Powder made from the leaves is also good for making teeth and gums stronger.
Strengthens bones and muscles:
Sage is a great source of vitamin K, which is a key part of how bones grow and change on their own. It helps keep bones healthy, lowers the chance of breaking them, keeps the body in balance, and gives the body a strong, perfect skeletal structure.
It also helps you build strong muscles. A by-product of vitamin D helps muscles tighten and loosen up. So, they give the skeletal frame of the body strength and support.
Sage is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Sage is good for getting rid of skin infections like pimples, zits, acne, and eczema because it kills bacteria. By stopping UV damage, it also stops wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles under the eyes, and spots. It also makes you less likely to get skin cancer.
Sage's active ingredients are very good at taking care of diabetes. It stops sugar from getting into the blood and makes the body produce more insulin. It turns starch into energy very well and reduces the symptoms of diabetes, like having to go to the bathroom a lot and thrusting.
