About clary sage oil from dōTERRA®:
Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) is a biennial or perennial herb, that grows up to six feet in height. The oil is steam distilled from the flower, yielding an oil with a woody, herbal, coniferous aroma. This mellow, warm, herbal scent helps to soothe nervous tension and lighten mood.
Clary sage is known for its ability to soothe discomforts associated with a woman’s monthly menstrual cycles, and help to balance hormones. The main chemical component of clary sage is linalyl acetate, part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing and balancing essential oils.
In the Middle Ages, the Salvia sclarea plant was nicknamed “clear eyes”, and it was frequently used for female discomfort and for soothing minor skin irritations. Inhaling clary sage can soothe nervous tension and lighten mood.
