*Best Clary Sage Essential Oi
Clary Sage Oil is a powerful aid in treating depression
Clary sage, commonly called salvia, is a tall herb with purple-green, hairy leaves and a profusion of small white or pale violet flowers. Steaming the petals and leaves yields a sweet, musky oil with nutty, floral tones, the most euphoric of essential oils, uplifting, intoxicating, deeply relaxing and revitalizing.
Physically, this oil is an excellent analgesic, particularly for abdominal and stomach pain, including menstrual cramps, menopausal symptoms such as 'hot flashes,' and labor pain. Clary sage relieves headache, including migraine, and is an effective chest massage to alleviate asthma. It is often used to treat dandruff and promote healthy scalp and hair.
Clary sage oil can produce a drug-like ''high,'' and is a powerful aid in treating depression, anxiety, and melancholy. It is useful in reducing stress that diminishes sexuality and thus is considered an aphrodisiac. This oil also aids in focusing the mind and results in more creative thinking, as well as restful sleep and vivid, pleasant dreams. Clary sage is often used to achieve a meditative state.
Use of euphoric oil such as clary sage is not compatible with alcohol consumption or recreational drug use. This oil should be avoided throughout pregnancy and never used on infants or children under 18.

Uses of Clary Sage Essential Oil
Do you struggle with hormonal fluctuation during your monthly period or with menopause?
Hormones can wreak havoc on your emotions and bodily functions. Fortunately, there’s clary sage.
Regularly used for women’s health issues, clary sage offers several health benefits, especially those involving hormone balance. For instance, the oil possesses natural properties that help regulate issues associated with menstruation. This is because the oil has a high content of linalyl acetate, which is a member of the ester group.
The oil supplies help relieve nervous tension and is a fantastic skin support and soothing agent. Clary sage’s ability to support feminine discomfort, along with its natural hormone-balancing properties, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you need to lighten the mood and support fluctuation.
To calm menstrual discomfort, put 3-4 drops clary sage on the lower abdomen. Massage gently into the stomach. Mix a couple drops each of clary sage and Roman chamomile in your bathwater for a calming and stress-relieving bath.
For hair and scalp health, put 1-2 drops into your daily dose of shampoo. You can also use clary sage aromatically to relax and improve sleep. Lastly, you can apply clary sage topically to support skin health. Simply rub 1-2 drops softly over the affected area.
