Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, making sure we blend well. Pat mixture into a greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Bake 1 hour.

Sage is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial, antifungal and antispasmodic. It can also act as a mild diuretic, act as an astringent and stimulate the immune system. It stimulates the adrenals, greatly alleviating stress.

Clary sage has been used for meditation and spiritual communication. The ancients considered it an oil of protection and psychic sight. It is used to bless a house or a person to keep him or her safe and grounded.
