Clary Sage is a necessary oil for every woman. It helps ease menstrual cramps, balances PMS, eases the pangs of menopause. No woman is too young or too old to appreciate the balance it brings us. Add its hormonal properties which can help balance menstrual and menopausal difficulties to Geranium for almost any sort of “female problems” both physical and emotional. One friend says she uses organic Clary Sage blended in honey in her morning tea to help regulate irregular periods. Others swear by its use to ease hot flashes and other menopausal difficulties. (Clary Sage is in all of our synergies made just for women, which you can view on our Blends for Women page.)

High ester Clary Sage can balance extreme emotions, reduce stress, and restore inner tranquility. It can produce a state of euphoria and has been used as an aphrodisiac. I find it wonderful for any stress related disorder. Many friends use it to combat depression. Equal amounts of Clary Sage, your favorite Lavender, and Ylangylang Complete make a wonderfully feminine stress relieving diffuser or aromalamp blend.

 Asthma: I have seen Clary recommended, blended with Frankincense, for the treatment of asthma. The source recommended adding 3 drops of each essential oil to 10 mls of carrier oil or cream and using it as a chest rub. It’s believed that the Clary Sage will both relax the bronchial spasm and reduce the anxiety and emotional tension that so often accompanies an asthma attack. (I would consider adding Litsea Cubeba to this mixture, since it is also a bronchial antispasmodic.)

Clary is also recommended for “lucid dreams.”

WARNING: Avoid using Clary Sage while drinking alcohol, and avoid while pregnant or nursing. It is also contraindicated in cases of estrogen dependent cancers. According to Madeleine Kerkhof Clary Sage can also interfere with Dopamine agonists, medications often used in treating Parkinson's Disease and even Restless Legs Syndrome.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
