Clary Sage essential oil has been a staple in traditional medicine for its use in balancing hormones and promoting restful sleep. When properly diluted with the carrier oil of your choice, clary sage has been shown to help ease severe dermatological infections.
Despite historical records showing that Clary Sage oil was used almost exclusively in the flavoring of food, beverages, and in perfumery, it has recently found its way into natural cosmetics for its ability to soothe skin. In medicinal applications, it is believed to effectively treat hormonal problems experienced by women as a result of their menstrual cycle, such as nervous tension and negative emotions, thereby earning it the nickname: “The Woman’s Oil.”
For those suffering from insomnia or other sleeping disorders, Clary Sage may just be your best bet. When added to a diffuser, Clary Sage oil produces an aroma that clears and relaxes your mind, promotes restful sleep, and even soothes headaches.
When it comes to cosmetic usage, Clary Sage essential oil is mostly limited to either oily and dry skin types, with irritation being more likely for other skin types. The cooling effect of this oil soothes skin afflicted with inflammation and eases rashes.
Additionally, its balancing property stabilises the production of natural oil and sebum to prevent acne breakouts. Clary Sage oil should be well diluted before topical use to ensure it does not irritate the skin. It can be effectively added to carrier oils, lotions or creams, and hair care products to enhance their benefits.
Clary Sage oil now stands as one of the most respected essential oils and is a must have for any enthusiast.
