Clary Sage is a distinctly feminine oil that we love for everything from supporting healthy skin to wearing as a personal fragrance to supporting healthy hormone levels! This oil is a great choice for women for many reasons.

  • Has a calming, soothing, lightly floral aroma
  • Promotes the appearance of healthy-looking skin and hair
  • Helps soothe minor skin irritations
  • Geared toward women for its hormone support properties
  • Supports healthy estrogen levels through naturally occurring phytoestrogens
  • Makes a lovely perfume
Clary Sage essential oil is a main component of the Dragon Time oil blend, a blend formulated for supporting normal, healthy emotions during the female monthly cycle. Clary Sage contains the naturally occurring constituent linalyl acetate, which contributes to its calming and soothing herbal aroma. Applied topically, Clary Sage essential oil promotes the appearance of healthy-looking skin, making this an oil every woman wants to have in her arsenal!

Native to the Mediterranean region, clary sage is a perennial shrub in the Salvia family. Traditionally used as a medicinal herb, it typically grows 3–4 feet tall and produces showy purple blooms that attract pollinators. Young Living's Clary Sage essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering parts of the plant at the Mona, UT and Simiane-la-Rotonde, France farms. 

 Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them sprecic health-supporting properties.

  • Linalyl acetate: a potent antioxidant that promotes circulatory health and allows the body to support healing from ischemic injury (injury as a result of poor blood flow)
  • Linalool: supports stress relief and uplifts the mood, helps support the body during times of illness and stress.
Clary Sage can be a powerful tool for female emotions! Since we know of its estrogen-support properties this makes a lot of sense. When our hormones are unbalanced it takes a toll on our health - both physical and emotional. Clary Sage is grounding and comforting and evokes feelings of feminie energy. It pairs well with citrus oils like Bergamot and Tangerine as well as patchouli and Lavender.

Clary Sage is also a component in the supplement CortiStop because of its ability to balance hormones and stop the stress response. Stress wreaks havoc on our health, so any ways we can find to support stress reduction are key! Pair daily use and inhalation of Clary Sage with meditation, journaling, affirmations and prayer.

 Because Clary Sage contains phytoestrogens, it can increase fertility in some women. It can also be used to support labor! Because of this some women choose to avoid excess use of clary sage during pregnancy until labor is desired.
