Clary sage is extracted by steam distillation from a perennial flower, and it has been used since the Middle Ages for its appealing scent and calming benefits. The floral and light scent makes a great addition to any perfume, and adding a drop or two behind each ear can create an allover peaceful disposition. The scent is also used in diffusers to create a relaxing atmosphere and a sense of focus. The light taste makes it great for combining with other essential oils with relaxing qualities, and it can be dranked in a tea before bed to promote a night of undisturbed sleeping. If you’re experiencing menstrual cramping, you can rub the oil into your abdomen to relieve the pain and to feel less irritated or short tempered.
