Salvia elegans, commonly called Pineapple sage or Tangerine Sage, [1] is a perennial shrub native to oak and pine scrub forests at 6,000 to 9,000 ft (1,800 to 2,700 m) elevation in the highlands of Mexico and Guatemala.

Pineapple sage is extensively used in Mexican traditional medicine, especially for the treatment of anxiety, and also for lowering of blood pressure. Although scientific information about these medicinal properties is scarce, a preliminary study on mice found support for the plant potentially having antidepressant and antianxiety properties.[5] Pineapple sage has also been shown to have a dose-dependent antihypertensive effect, attributed to its action as an Angiotensin II receptor antagonist and inhibitor of the angiotensin converting enzyme.
