Description: The Clary Sage plant has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries, and it’s antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, carminative, euphoric and antidepressant properties have earned it a permanent role in the brewing of natural healing concoctions. In recent times, however, Clary Sage has come to be highly valued for its essential oil, which harbors numerous health benefits. In particular, it’s one of the best essential oils for hormone balancing in women and has, consequently, come to be known as the woman’s oil. It’s also famous for its ability to boost blood circulation, support body systems, fight leukemia, and improve eye health.
Clary Sage grows in all the temperate regions of the world. The essential oil is derived from the leaves, buds, and flowers through steam distillation. When fresh, the oil is a colorless liquid, sometimes with a pale yellow or green shade. Its aroma is sweet, nutty and herbaceous, and is initially strong, but gradually loses potency in storage.
