Clary Sage is a favorite among aromatherapists for its earthy, fruity and floral aroma that is both nutty and herbaceous as well as its many benefits. If the aroma isn’t your favorite to start with, chances are it will grow on you. Clary Sage is also an excellent alternative for those who can’t do Lavender. It has both calming properties and a comparable floral aroma for your aromatic blends. The goodness doesn’t stop there! Let’s take a look.

 

Calming and Balancing

One of the main chemical constituents in Clary Sage is Linalyl Acetate, which has calming and grounding properties. This same constituent is found in other calming oils like Bergamot, Lavender, and Petitgrain. Because of this, Clary Sage is most known for is its ability to help create a calming, balancing and relaxing atmosphere. This is especially great for helping gain some emotional balance when it feels like your emotions are running away with you. And while it helps calm, it’s not as sedating as Lavender.

 

Hair, Skin, and Nails

For gorgeous hair, skin, and nails, Clary Sage is definitely an oil you want to have on hand as it can help with all three. When it comes to your hair, it helps to promote a healthy, flake-free scalp as well as balance oil production. This, in turn, will help promote healthier hair as well as combat hair loss. For those with oily skin, add Clary Sage to your skincare routine to help balance sebum and excess oil. And lastly, this oil is great for promoting healthy nails and cuticles. This oil is an all-around winner when it comes to beauty!

We all know those issues that are specific to women… Cramps, periods, and PMS. It’s enough to make that time of the month absolutely miserable. Clary Sage can help relieve the symptoms of many of these issues. Because it’s a balancing, mood-boosting oil, it can help calm the turbulent emotions that may arise during that time of the month. When applied topically to the abdomen, it can also help soothe cramps and pain. For menstrual pain, combine two drops each Clary Sage, Geranium Bourbon, and Marjoram Sweet in your favorite carrier oil and massage onto your abdomen.

  1. Isn’t important to note that as helpful as Clary Sage is for women’s issues it is definitely not recommended for pregnant women until they are ready to give birth,at which time is can be very helpful

  2. Just received my bottle! I interesting smell. Reminds me Blue Tansy, without the cloying sweetness. Do you have a recipe for hair tonic or shampoo to help with dandruff for someone with eczema?

  3. Clary Sage is one of my favorites. I always add some to my sleep blends and love diffussing it with Ho Wood and Vetiver.

    1. Clary Sage is our spotlight oil right now, so you do get 15% off at checkout! Keep in mind, this discount only goes through Tuesday.

  4. Thanks for the info. How do you use clary sage on your hair and cuticles? I would like to use it. With the cold weather I noticed my hair having little flakes!
