Clary Sage - Nature's Anti-Stress Tonic

Clary Sage is one of the most calming and euphoric of all essential oils. It soothes and eases tension and is an effective nerve tonic. If you are feeling tired, Clary Sage will help boost your energy levels. It is wonderful for treating depression, stress, insomnia and deep seated tension.

The hormone balancing properties of Clary Sage can also be beneficial for the female reproductive system. It helps to relieve painful periods, PMS and abdominal cramps. In skin care, Clary Sage oil is helpful as it promotes cell regeneration and regulates sebum production.

Some of the therapeutic properties of Clary Sage oil are antidepressant, anticonvulsive, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, digestive, euphoric and sedative.

Keep in mind that Clary Sage is a stimulant and too much can cause side effects such as drowsiness and dizziness. It can produce euphoria in some individuals. Clary Sage oil should be avoided during pregnancy as it can induce labour.

* Clary sage is calming to the nervous system, particularly in cases of depression, stress, insomnia and deep seated tension. Several drops in a burner or bath should help to ease symptoms.
