Salvia sclarea - France
Clary sage is a great oil for relaxation, anxiety and stress and gives a feeling of euphoria and is useful for indecision and creativity. It is a good choice for women who experience PMS or other menstrual issues. It is often characterised as an aphrodisiac. It is useful for muscular spasms.
Clary sage is contraindicated in pregnancy as it is a utero-tonic and thus is indicated in late pregnancy (38+ weeks) and is used in birthing oils.
Clary sage has a distinct tea like aroma, herbaceous and slightly floral.
It blends well with citrus oils, cedarwood, frankincense, geranium, lavender & patchouli.
It is steam distilled from the flowering tops of the plants.
It will keep for around 4-5 years if stored with lid tightly closed in a cool, dark area.
