11 USES & HEALTH BENEFITS OF CLARY SAGE ESSENTIAL OIL
Clary sage essential oil is extracted from the herbaceous plant Salvia sclarea, closely related to garden sage (S. officinalis). The medicinal use of Clary sage, especially as an eye cleanser, goes back thousands of years. The oil has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, carminative, sedative, hypotensive, euphoric, and antidepressant properties. It is considered a milder, and relatively safer, alternative to sage essential oil in many respects.
