This limitation on the duration of use of sage tincture is based on its thujone content, an essential oil component of the plant. Large oral doses of the concentrated thujone essential oil component have been associated with cases of toxicity. Thus, a 2-week duration of use for the tincture is reasonable. This duration of use is a requirement originating with Health Canada.
