This giant of the sage family was traditionally used in the musky perfumes of the rich aristocracy. The tall purple and pink flowers are laden with fragrance during the summer months and when cut down, the plant is sticky with essential oil.
In modern aromatherapy, Clary Sage is often used in treatments for women during transitional periods such as puberty, labour and menopause due to its restorative and balancing effects.
Used in massage or a vaporising blend, Clary Sage can help improve the symptoms of menstruation and menopause, such as cramp, tiredness and mood swings, bringing calm and balance to the body and mind.
