    Safety Information: Test a small amount of essential oil on the inside of your arm to check for allergy/sensitivity before applying to your body.  Always use oils in the recommended amounts (do not overuse them):  Your body will tell you when you've had enough in general, but it is important to note that using too much of any substance, natural or otherwise (even water!), will give you adverse effects.

    Where do I find Clary Sage oil?  


    The benefits above only apply to properly distilled, therapeutic grade essential oils.  The quality of oils in the general marketplace varies.  Many oils are distilled in a way that retains their scent, but not the therapeutic chemical constituents that give them their effectiveness.  Still other oils are cut with other ingredients or chemicals that reduce their potency and may have adverse effects.  At this time, these 'extra' ingredients are not required to be labeled.  Therapeutic grade essential oils are pure (meaning free of fillers) and are distilled using a process that was developed over many years and determined to optimize the measurable levels of therapeutic constituents of the oils.

    Therapeutic grade, pure essential oils that are regularly tested and researched for their potency are available from:

  1. I like its benefits for women. I think it's what they need in order to boost their health. It's similar to ginseng supplements because they both give support for our health.

  2. I love the smell of clary sage, it's pretty potent. I would add a bit of lavender to it and put it in a base oil to use on it skin, unless it comes in one already. I find it allows the scent to linger longer.
