I have referred to the restorative properties of sage. If you soak 90 g (3 oz) of sage leaves in 1 litre (36 fl oz) of sherry for 9 days, then drain the liquor, let it rest for a day, and decant it into a bottle through a paper filter, you have an excellent disinfectant mouthwash of Catalan extraction. (See also p 34, for A triloba.)
