About the Plant:

Clary Sage is a plant with velvety, grayish, heart-shaped leaves and pastel-colored flowers. The leaves and flowers are crushed and steam-distilled, producing a highly therapeutic essential oil with a potent, pleasing aroma. The color of clary sage oil can range from pale yellow to dark yellow.

Clary sage is a biennial plant, meaning it grows, flowers and dies in two years. It’s easy to cultivate, however and produces a large volume of herb material each year. Clary sage oil has a complex aroma that is both sweet and herbal. Its scent has been known to evoke feelings of joy and well-being. It also has undertones of fruitiness, making it popular in perfumes and cosmetic products.

Where It Grows:

Clary sage is easy to grow in high-temperature areas while is why it is native to the Mediterranean basin, along with some areas of North Africa and Central Asia. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to receive Certified Organic Clary Sage from France.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The ancient Greeks and Romans recognized Clary Sage for its sensual, aphrodisiac effects, Sclarea, part of the Latin name of Clary Sage, literally means “clear,” a nod to one of the traditional uses of Clary Sage, which was to clear mucus from the eyes.* This is how Clary Sage got one of its many names, Clear Eye. Clary Sage was prescribed in folk medicine for use in a compress to reduce tumors and inflammations.* The versatile herb has also found its way into beer (as a substitute for hops) and as a flavoring agent in tobacco.

Clary sage is said to have gotten its unique, fresh scent from Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of beauty and love. This soothing and calming plant has since become a symbol of femininity, and herbaceous extract is often used in folk medicine as well. A symbol of femininity, Clary Sage Oil is known for its benefits for women’s health, especially for menstruation and menopause.* A calming oil, it is also perfect for relaxing the mind, boosting focus, and reducing anxiety.*
