Clary Sage Essential Oil 15ml
What Is Clary Sage? Clary sage gets its name from the Latin word “clarus,” which means “clear.” It’s a perennial herb that grows from May to September, and it’s native to the northern Mediterranean, along with some areas in North Africa and Central Asia. Clary sage is one of the most healthful essential oils, with anticonvulsive, antidepressant, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also a nerve tonic and sedative with soothing and warming components.
Product benefits & How to use:
- Relieves Menstrual Discomfort
This essential oil is also antispasmodic, meaning it treats spasms and related issues such as muscle cramps, headaches, and stomach aches. It does this by relaxing the nerve impulses that we cannot control. Clary sage works to regulate the menstrual cycle by balancing hormone levels naturally and stimulating the opening of an obstructed system. It has the power to treat symptoms of PMS as well, including bloating, cramps, mood swings and food cravings.
- Supports Hormonal Balance
Clary sage affects the hormones of the body because it contains natural phytoestrogens, which are referred to as “dietary oestrogens” that are derived from plants and not within the endocrine system. These phytoestrogens give clary sage the ability to cause estrogenic effects. It regulates oestrogen levels and ensures the long-term health of the uterus — reducing the chances of uterine and ovarian cancer.
- Relieves Insomnia
People suffering from insomnia may find relief with clary sage oil. It is a natural sedative and will give you the calm and peaceful feeling that is necessary in order to fall asleep.
- Increases Circulation
Clary sage opens the blood vessels and allows for increased blood circulation; it also naturally lowers blood pressure by relaxing the brain and arteries. This boosts the performance of the metabolic system by increasing the amount of oxygen that gets into the muscles and supporting organ function.
- Improves Cardiovascular Health
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of clary sage oil are cardio-protective and may help lower cholesterol naturally. The oil also decreases emotional stress and improves circulation — two very important factors for reducing cholesterol and supporting your cardiovascular system.
- Works as Stress Reliever
Clary sage serves as an antidepressant and as one of the best natural remedies for anxiety.
- Fights Leukaemia
A promising study conducted at the Department of Immunology, Hellenic Anticancer Institute in Athens, Greece, examined the role that sclareol, a chemical compound found in clary sage oil, plays in fighting leukaemia. The results showed that sclareol is able to kill cell lines through the process of apoptosis.
- Kills Bacteria and Infections
Clary sage curbs the growth and spread of bacterial and fungal infections; it can also stop the dangerous behaviour of bacteria entering our body through water or food. These antibacterial properties protect the colon, intestines, urinary tract and excretory system. This powerful oil is also antiseptic, so wounds will not become infected with germs when you apply this essential oil to them. This beneficial property will protect wounds and heal cuts, and it will help your body to heal quickly.
- Promotes Skin Health
There is an important ester in clary sage oil called linalyl acetate, which is a naturally occurring phytochemical found in many flowers and spice plants. This ester reduces skin inflammation and works as a natural remedy for rashes; it also regulates the production of oil on the skin.
- Aids Digestion
The digestive system is the foundation of good health. This amazing system includes a combination of nerves, hormones, bacteria, blood and organs that work together to complete the intricate task of digesting the foods and liquids that we consume every day. Although evidence on this benefit is limited, clary sage oil has been used to boost the secretion of gastric juices and bile, which speeds up and eases the digestive process. By relieving symptoms of indigestion, it minimizes cramping, bloating and abdominal discomfort. This powerful essential oil may also work to prevent stomach disorders and helps the body to absorb the much-needed vitamins and minerals that are consumed throughout the day. It has been used to regulate bowel movements, relieve constipation, and helps heal ulcer symptoms and wounds in the stomach.
How to Use:
- Diffuse or inhale 2–3 drops of clary sage essential oil.
- Joint pain add 3–5 drops of clary sage oil to warm bath water. Try combining the essential oil with Epsom salt and baking soda to make your own healing bath salts.
- For cramp and pain relief, create massage oil by diluting 5 drops of clary sage oil with 5 drops of a carrier oil (like jojoba or coconut oil) and apply it to needed areas.
- To ease digestion, massage the abdomen with equal parts clary sage oil and a carrier oil, or use a hot compress with 3–5 drops of the essential oil soaked into it.
- To naturally relieve asthma symptoms, mix 4 drops of this oil with lavender oil and massage the blend on the chest or back.
Cautions and Storage info:
Side Effects: Use clary sage oil with caution during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester or when using it on the abdomen. It can cause uterine contractions that may be dangerous. It also shouldn’t be used on infants or toddlers. Avoid using this essential oil during or after alcohol use. Reports indicate that this may lead to vivid dreams and trouble sleeping. When using the oil topically, make sure to test yourself for skin sensitivity. Apply it to a small area first to make sure you won’t have a negative reaction.
Drug Interactions: Chloral hydrate and hexobarbitone interact with clary sage oil. They cause sleepiness and drowsiness, and clary sage seems to increase the effects of these hypnotic and sedative medications. These interactions seem to increase the effects of the two pharmaceutical drugs.
Caution! Please take note! Because we care about you and your family, we do not recommend ingesting any essential oils. They are highly concentrated and can be extremely toxic to your health and epithelial cells. (Always avoid eyes, sinuses, mouth, throat, and stomach.) Before using essential oil topically, ALWAYS do a patch test. Do not use undiluted essential oils on your skin, always use with a carrier oil or cream. If any irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention. Consult your healthcare practitioner before using essential oils, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any pre-existing medical conditions. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Always use oils responsibly and with due diligence. If skin irritation occurs discontinue use.
