It eliminates distractions from the mind and assist individuals in finding a state of emptiness where creative forces may be realised. Opening individuals to the dream world, Clary Sage increases the ability to visualise and imagine new possibilities – this is an excerpt from the Emotions and Essential Oils 7th Edition Book, available from in my shop.

CLARY SAGE ESSENTIAL OIL BENEFITS

Clary Sage is a perennial herb that grows up to six feet in height and has a woody and coniferous aroma.  Medieval authors called the herb “clear eye”. “Clary” is derived from the Latin word “clarus”, which means clear.

Hi Katrina, just FYI about clary sage. It is beyond amazing for easing hot flushes. I put a few drops into some oil and into a roller and rolled on the balls of my feet before bed. Amazing in just 2 days all hot flushes had gone. However, I have had oestragen receptive breast cancer and my specialist told me under no circumstances to use clary sage as it is a plant Oestrogen. People do need to check with their Dr if they are undergoing any treatment before using essential oils. Just wanted you to be aware. Pip Archer.

Hi Pip, thank you for sharing. I have heard before that Clary Sage is great for hot flushes. You also make a very good point about consulting your doctor if undergoing any treatment. I always make sure to include this caution in my essential oil blogs – the same goes for pregnant and nursing mothers too. Kat x
