Inspiration in a bottle! Or cure all in a bottle! What can Clary Sage not do?
Clary Sage can help stimulate thought patterns, lighten moods, balance hormones, calm nerves, relieves the bronchi, soothes the digestive system, hush anxieties, and is a woman’s best friend during menstruation. There are literally so many things it does, it would be easier to list what it does not do. Definitely a must to keep on hand for every member of the family for almost any complaint they could list.
The plant is seen growing in the wild all over Europe, Russia, and the United States, but was traditionally native to Syria, France, Italy and Switzerland. It has large hairy, green leaves like the traditional sage plant, and yields small purple/blue flowers. The oil is from steam distilling the leaves, leaving a beautiful orange, lightly amber colored oil. The oil itself has a nutty, earthly flavor, yet slightly sweet when brewed as a tea.
Clary Sage is said to have gotten its name from the Latin word “clarus” meaning clear. In writings, we see that Clary Sage was used to help heal vision problems, and “clearing” up the eyes. Due to its intoxicating properties, merchants would often mix it with wine to increase the intoxification effects of the wine without adding to the overall price, thereby increasing the profits. Clary Sage has often been used to help fragrance soaps and lotions. When added to lotion, it can be used as an invigorating rub.
Nervous System Uses: Clary Sage works in the hypothalamus to relieve anxiety, enliven moods, can help relieve vertigo, nervousness, insomnia, and help enhance the ability to focus. Clary Sage can be used either topically or internally. If topically, rub on the temples, navel, and feet. It may also be used on the spine and shoulders to help eliminate stress and anxiety. One drop of Clary Sage may be added to four ounces of liquid and then consumed. Clary Sage may also be diffused. One word of caution: it has been reported that extended inhalation of Clary Sage may cause a headache. Use with caution if diffusing.
Reproductive Health Uses: Due to its antispasmodic affects, it is very affective on cramping. Rub several drops over the abdomen for almost instant relieve. May rub in the navel, bottom of the feet, and wrist for help sleeping during cramps. (Warning: may cause some sedation, do not use when operating machinery or driving.) Rubbed on the abdomen may also help relieve painful or unusual bleeding by causing the areas to open up and release the flow of blood. From an aphrodisiac point of view, it is a known libido increases, and is very useful in treating psychological frigidity.
Respiratory Health Uses: Clary Sage can be very effective in relieving coughs by relieving the spasms that initiate the cough. Combined with the sedative effects, Clary Sage can be helpful in allowing your body to rest from the constant coughing. Topically, rub oil that has been mixed with a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil on temples, chest, navel and bottom of the feet.
Ocular Health Uses: Clary Sage is has been called “Oculus Christi” or “Eye of Christ” in the Middle Ages because of its propensity to help relieve the eye disorders. It can help soothe inflamed and infected eyes and can help to protect against the loss of vision with age and macular degeneration in some cases. (Note: Do NOT apply the oil directly to the eye.) To use, apply topically to the temples with several drops of Clary Sage mixed in a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil.
Digestive Health Uses: Clary Sage not only is a powerful carminative (it helps expel gas!), it is also very helpful in releasing and maintaining stomach “juices”. In addition, the antiseptic properties can help heal ulcers as well. Topically, rub several drops of the essential oil combined with a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil on your abdomen and the bottom of your feet. Internally, one drops may be added to four ounces of liquid and consumed.
Blood Pressure Uses: Clary Sage can be a powerful tool to lower blood pressure. Used topically on the temples, navel, bottom of the feet, and wrists, it has been known to lower blood pressure very effective. Caution: Due to sedative affects, be very careful the first few days it is used. May cause drowsiness, therefore, please test your tolerance. Also, Clary Sage should not be used to replace any prescription medication without the advance permission and guidance of your physician.
Note: Clary Sage should not be used during pregnancy due to the fact that it can actually induce labor, but can be very effective for relieving labor pains and discomfort. Due to the sedative affects, it should be used with caution. Over usage can cause a headache. Lastly, it enhances the affects of alcohol and narcotics, so the combination use is not suggested.
