Clary Sage essential oils has been a staple in my medicine cabinet. I use it daily in one way, shape, or form because it’s excellent for helping to balance hormones and it’s very soothing. Given that I suffer from endometriosis, using clary sage has been very helpful. I diffuse it or I apply it directly to my abdomen, my wrists, neck or the bottom of my feet to help offset the effects of endometriosis.
Clary Sage essential oil dates back to the Middle Ages and is noted for its relaxing and soothing properties that help with rejuvenation and calming of the skin. With its calming properties, Clary Sage is an amazing oil for women to use during their menstrual cycle, as it creates a cooling and soothing feeling. Clary Sage is also wonderful for stress relief… just add it to a bath or diffuse at night for restful sleep.

As always, please remember that I am not a doctor. I write articles based on my own personal experience with essential oils and the research I’ve done. Always remember to consult with your physician with any concerns regarding the use of essential oils and their potential interactions with any medications you might be taking.
Also, remember that essential oils are extremely potent; For example, one drop of essential oil can be up to 70 times more potent than their herbal form (such as thyme or oregano).
Not all essential oil brands are created equal. There are many brands out there that won’t be effective for health or healing. They will smell yummy, but that’s about it.
When choosing essential oils, it’s so important to choose pure, high quality oils that are naturally safe and effective. Brands, such as doTERRA, gently and carefully distill from plants that have been harvested properly by experienced growers for ideal extract composition and efficacy.
