The therapeutic qualities of Clary Sage essential oil have been recognised since the birth of Christ. It was an Anglo Saxon sacred herb and by the 16th century it was widely known as a therapeutic tonic. Affectionately known as 'clear eye', Clary Sage was used in medieval times for clearing foreign bodies from the eyes.
Clary Sage is perhaps the most powerful relaxant of all the essential oils, making it particularly useful for a range of stress-related problems. It is described as having a 'euphoric' effect, similar to that of consuming alcohol. It has all of the qualities of Sage oil, and more, but is considered non-toxic and safer to use.

Clary Sage has a euphoric, antidepressant effect and a calming, sedating influence on the nerves and emotions making it helpful for anxiety, depression and other stress-related problems.
Clary Sage oil can be helpful with female related problems such as PMS/PMT, painful periods, irregular periods, scanty menstruation, the menopause and to aid relaxation during labor, thus encouraging a less painful birth (also widely used by pregnant women who are past their due date to encourage labor). It is a powerful muscle relaxant which can help with muscle pain, tension and spasm and has aphrodisiac properties which are particularly helpful where sexual problems are related to stress. It is also a useful tonic to use during convalescence or after childbirth.
