Salvia sclarea


Clary Sage, also known as Muscatel Sage, is a flowering garden herb that is a member of the mint family known as the Lamiaceae (formally Labiatae) botanical family.  Native to the Mediterranean region, it is also grown in places such as France, Russia, and the United States. Even though it is new to the U.S., it can be a hearty grower and has been listed as an invasive weed in the state of Washington.


Clary Sage essential oil with its herbaceous and slightly floral aroma, blends well with many other oils.  Add to your choice of citrus oils for an uplifting diffuser blend. It is also one oil that is known as a staple for many women.  Try blending with Roman Chamomile, Lavender, and Sweet Marjoram and properly dilute for a comforting women’s massage blend.  


Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

  • Dilute to 1% in your choice of carrier oils to make a face serum or body oil.  Apply a small amount to damp skin after washing to help seal in moisture.  

  • Add 5-15 drops to 1 oz. of your choice of carrier oils to make a massage oil.

  • Mix a few drops with an unscented liquid soap or bubble bath and add to the tub when filling. 

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).
