Sage: a concentrate of benefits, the most coveted aromatic plant of all time

The medicinal herb with a thousand powers

The medicinal herb with a thousand powers

Before starting, a little advice. In the field of salvia officinalis it is better to resign oneself to the idea of being surprised because, just when you think you have reviewed all its advantages, that is the moment when you discover that you have neglected a truly marvellous one. 

Let's start with the comfort zone where everyone, skilled chefs or simple tasters, made its acquaintance: the kitchen. Sage leaves are unparalleled for their aroma intensity, spicy notes and versatility. There is no dish which is not charmed by it. Meat, stuffed pasta, condiments and infusions are its chosen partners, both within the Mediterranean tradition and beyond it.

But now comes the fun. This small evergreen shrub- which prefers warmth but fears neither frost nor drought - is known for its anti-inflammatory, digestive, balsamic, disinfectant, antioxidant and bactericidal qualities. What's more, it helps with the ability to memorise, awakens from the torpor of tiredness, contrasts depressive states and is said to be the most precious ally of women and the worst enemy of their hormonal disorders.

Then we have cosmetics and here, perhaps, a treatise would not be enough.

There’s more. Did you know of its benefits on microcirculation? Translated into agricosmetic language, this means a valid aid for the health of the hair bulb and against the dreaded (and gender-free) hair loss. Hair that in the meantime gains in shine and hydration, but by now you would have bet on this. 

Yes, sage is a true injection of strength and nourishment for various types of hair. It polishes and closes the cuticles, giving new light to hair which is opaque and devitalised; it cannot coexist with dandruff and excess grease, which it defeats without the possibility of revenge; it supports cell regeneration, moisturises, lightens and makes hair vaporous

 

Biodynamic sage: when a 0 km medicinal plant turns into an Organic Way ingredient

Biodynamic sage: when a 0 km medicinal plant turns into an Organic Way ingredient

During its balsamic period, this prodigious perennial bush gives its best. 

Its active ingredients reach the maximum concentration and, at the time of harvesting, we can say that they are already fantasising about their future agricosmetic uses in the Ortofficina

This happens because the Oway farm is not conceived as a mere collector of the ingredients required for laboratory formulas. Ortofficina is an experience of harmony with nature, of well-being for man and of respect for the ecosystem.

We have made this journey many times and, at the end of each one, we have chosen to offer this experience in the form of beneficial solutions for skin and hair.

Agricolor is the leader, the highest celebration of sage in the form of hair colouring. With its 35% concentration of biodynamic and organic sage macerate, the list of benefits increases dramatically: anti-frizz effect, extreme shine, enveloping fragrance and the guarantee of a sensory experience destined to become a long-lasting memory.

The Rebalancing program – consisting of the rebalancing clay Amazonian control clayof the pure compound Pure biodynamic sage and of the normalising bath Sebum balance hair bath – draws extensively from the sebum-regulating and purifying characteristics of sage to offer products intended for skin and greasy hair. 

With the field cleared of magic, the extraordinary virtues of the plant considered a panacea for all ills remain. There is no vegetable element full of expectations that, like sage, has been able to defeat scepticism, resorting only to the power of results.

It is not a miracle, it is the oldest of wonders. Nature.
