Clary Sage :
Why it's great: Helps to regulate and balance your emotions. It's often used to clear the mind, de-stress, and treat insomnia thanks to its relaxing and soothing characteristics. Clary Sage is useful in lifting depression and de-stressing. Clary Sage is a natural antiseptic, antibacterial, astringent, and deodorant. It can ease night sweats due to menopause and encourage peaceful sleep. Useful in counteracting hairloss and a number of skin conditions, including dry skin as well as oily skin and acne. Helps to combat gum disease. Decreases swelling and is helpful with varicose veins, bursitis, boils, and infected pores. Clary Sage stimulates the production of endorphins (the body's natural pain killers), which is why it's an excellent oil in time of labor. Stimulates the memory, and its aphrodisiac qualities help to increase libido.
My favorite use for Clary Sage:
I put a few drops of Clary Sage oil on a tissue and carry it around with me. Whenever I feel stressed to the max, a brief whiff is beneficial, as Clary Sage helps with hypertension.
