Clary Sage Essential Oil, or Salvia Sclarea, is a lovely oil with a musky floral aroma. It has an abundance of health and beauty benefits which will be today's topic of discussion.

Health Benefits of Clary Sage

Clary Sage has been used for centuries to help alleviate the symptoms of exhaustion, stress and pain. Medical research shows that when used in aromatherapy, Clary Sage may reduce pain and anxiety during labor. In a February 2000 article published in Complementary Therapies in Nursing and Midwifery, over 8000 women were studied during childbirth and the use of essential oils in carrier oils was looked at in terms of overall pain relief. Of 10 essential oils used, only two were shown to help manage pain during labor -- Chamomile and Clary Sage.The study showed that this essential oil is successful at treating the symptoms of anxiety and pain associated with labor and childbirth.

Clary Sage may also be an effective wound healing agent, according to a study published in a recent edition of Advances in Dermatology and Allergology. The study looked at the use of Clary Sage as an antimicrobial ingredient. Interesting!
