In The Megalithic Empire we make occasional reference to salvia (sage in English) without ever discovering what it is -- or was in ye ancient times. This little story from today's medium.com suggests it might have had its uses in mystery religions and such like. Powerful stuff. https://medium.com/s/trips-worth-telling/the-salvia-trip-that-took-me-from-alaska-to-texas-6478bd5c5d57

To be fair, in TME we mention that sage contains thujone, the compound present in artemisia (wormwood) and associated with mind-altering experiences.

The Medium.com article makes the point that botanists across the ages repeat, plant substances can be medicinal or toxic depending on quantities used.
