Healing With Clary Sage




The aromatic leaves and flower tops of Clary Sage are steam-distilled to create a potent oil with remarkable sedative properties. Blended with Lavender, it is invaluable for easing depression and anxiety; by itself, it can help teat panic attacks, stress-induced headaches and muscular cramps, and it is an excellent tonic for the nervous system.

Clary Sage's primary action is on the female reproductive system. It mimics estrogen and regulates scanty periods and menopausal symptoms. Blended with Jasmine and Sandalwood oil, Clary Sage's euphoric action can help cure impotence.

An effective relaxant for tense and strained muscles, Clary Sage is also useful for people with high blood pressure.



Active Ingredients Of Clary Sage Oil



Esters~Clary Sage contains more than 70% Esters, such as Linalyl Acetate. These give Clary Sage its calming and sedative properties. They are also anti-spasmodic and digestive tonics. Clary Sage is remarkable for sore muscles due to this high content of Esters.



Alcohols~Clary Sage also contains alcohols including Linalool and Sclareol. These act as good general tonics and balancers and they are also warming and uplifting to the mind and body.
