Needs source and cleanup[edit]

I moved the following from the article page, where it had been place under the reference section. Parts of it don't seem to ring true with what I can find in a quick Google search, but I don't want to just delete it. If anyone can source or clarify this, feel free to put it back (above the reference section).--Curtis Clark (talk) 05:56, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

It flowers from April until May and during summer time it's "apples" are ready to harvest. These apples are produced when bees try to penetrate the stem of the flower and the plant trying to protect itself, creates an apple-shaped bump with a very tasty juice. Rich in aroma, it is commonly used for century's from Cretans to prepare tea alone or in combination with other herbs. It is well known for it's relaxing abilities and for stomach aches, also for relieving muscular pains and as a tonic. Very difficult to find thus grows on steep rocky hills with low vegetation. Also known as Faskomilo.

Salvia is also commonly used as a halusanogenic drug, being sold widely as an insent makes it easy for abusers to get there hands on it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.106.33.254 (talk) 04:31, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
