Clary Sage works to bring clarity to the user. It brings about feelings of relaxation and soothing which is great at relieving stress related complaints. This euphoric oil is native to southern Europe and is made from the purple flowers of the plant.
Clary Sage essential oil has a herbaceous, clean, sweet and earthy scent. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the intense aroma, it can be blended nicely with other oils such as lavender, geranium, bergamot, lemon, lime, cedarwood and sandalwood.
You can use Clary Sage oil to ease stressed nerves, anxiety, tension and fatigue and when inhaled it encourages tranquility which can help in getting a peaceful night’s rest. It’s also been known to ease symptoms associated with menopause, cramps and PMS. Its astringent properties make it suitable to treat and manage oily skin and hair.
Not recommended for use during pregnancy or with young children Safe for topical use when diluted with a carrier oil but always patch test first to ensure there are no reactions
