We love Clary Sage Essential Oil for its therapeutic properties. It can help alleviate dozens of ailments from stress and depression to skin conditions and even symptoms of menstruation and menopause. Dive a little bit deeper with us as we explore some of the benefits and share some clary sage essential oil recipes. 

Benefits of Clary Sage Essential Oil:

Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

This essential oil is one of the most recommended stress-relieving oils in aromatherapy. Its sedative qualities are known to induce feelings of ease, peace, positivity, clarity, and relaxation. A scientific study that tested the effects of various essential oils on depression found that Clary Sage was, in fact, the most potent. (Other oils included Chamomile, Rosemary, and Lavender.)

Topical Skincare

Not only does Clary Sage Essential Oil induce mental calmness, but it can also be calming for irritated skin. Since the Middle Ages, this plant has been used to treat inflammation. When the essential oil is used topically, it has a slight cooling effect which helps relieve inflammation due to rash and other skin irritations.

Clary Sage Essential Oil may also help regulate the body’s natural production of oils and sebum, so if you find that your skin is too oily or too dry, this oil may be used to help balance it out. 

Symptoms of Menstruation and Menopause

For women of any age, Clary Sage can offer profound benefits. It is believed that Clary Sage Essential Oil has a strong effect on the endocrine system (and perhaps more specifically, the pituitary gland), which helps regulate the balance of estrogen and other hormones. It contains a compound called “sclareol” which is believed to mimic estrogen.

I don't know if it really mimic estrogen, but research suggests that diluted clary sage oil, applied to the bottoms of the feet may help reduce hot flashes.

Clary Sage Essential Oil is also anti-spasmodic, which means it may help relieve cramps and pains, a perfect offering for those of us who suffer from such symptoms during menstruation. And last, but not least, Clary Sage also acts on the nervous system to help relieve relieve mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
