"Health is adding a level of intention to every area of your life"
- Miranda Anderson
The essential oil extracted from this herb is a true powerhouse with its anticonvulsive, antidepressant, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It also offers sedative, soothing and warming effects.
When it comes to hormones and endocrine function, Clary Sage has long been known to help with period cramps, heavy menstrual cycles, hot flashes and can even be used to support hormonal imbalances.
Clary Sage can also support our sleep, which in turn supports our endocrine function. Try adding a drop to your pillow case or diffusing it in your bedroom as part of your nightly routine.
If you experience period cramping, try rubbing Clary Sage essential oil over your abdomen along with a carrier oil such as coconut, almond, jojoba or olive oil. This oil is also very supportive of the digestive system; which can also play a big role in hormonal issues.
Clary Sage isn’t just for women though! Its benefits can be seen with the improvement in feelings of mental clarity and groundedness for men and women when this oil is diffused.
***As always, if you’re new to essential oils, connect with someone you trust to help you get started! In addition to this, always use high qualitied, third-party tested essential oils to make sure you are using pure, safe and effective products.
