Clary sage essential oil has a herbaceous, heavy, nutty aroma with a subtle fruit undertone. Clary sage oil is a strong, warming and relaxing oil which is calming for nervous tension and head stress and is useful for helping calm down highly agitated states. It is also helpful for a range of female complaints, as well as muscle health and balancing the digestive system. When used on the skin, clary sage is useful for balancing oil secretions and for calming puffy skin. It has been said to be useful for encouraging appropriate hair growth. As clary sage is a very relaxing oil caution is advised during driving. Consumption of alcohol should also be avoided as it can exaggerate the effects of alcohol, and in excess it can cause headaches and nausea. Clary sage oil is distilled from the fresh flowering tops and leaves by steam distillation. Clary sage blends well with most oils, in particular lavender, citronella, grapefruit, geranium, sweet orange, frankincense and lemon.
