Clary sage is a species of sage that can grow up to 1.50 meters tall and is found in southern and central Europe. The oil smells delicately spicy.
Its area of application is mainly in aromatherapy and naturopathy. It is effective in connection with menstrual cramps and is also said to help against hot flashes and sweating during menopause. Internal use with alcohol is discouraged as clary sage oil may enhance its effects.
