Balance Out Estrogen Levels

Throughout a woman’s life her estrogen levels change. Starting puberty, child bearing years, and menopause are major changes in a woman’s life cycle. Each has their own unique challenges and Clary Sage can be there to assist throughout.

Clary Sage & Starting Puberty. Sometimes teens get depressed with all the changes going on about and the changes inside their body – feeling stressed, not understanding, peer pressure can lead to depression. Diffusing Clary Sage and Lavender each night in a teenagers room can promote a restful nights sleep and promote positive feelings, elevate mood and induce creativity.

Child Bearing Years. Clary Sage should not be used while pregnant yet can be very beneficial during labor.

Clary sage essential oil is thought to stimulate labor by increasing the oxytocin level. Stimulating the uterus to induce contractions. It also promotes relaxation during labor as it calms the nervous system and acts as a form of pain relief. Should not be used during pregnancy.

Between Puberty and Menopause Clary Sage is very beneficial in easing the discomfort of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It can decrease the severity of menstrual cramps. Calms and relaxes the body, reduces stress and anxiety.

During the onset of menopause, our estrogen levels start to decline, which is a major cause for many menopausal symptoms

During the menopause years use Clary Sage Essential Oil to alleviate hot flashes, thought to help slow the development of osteoporosis, fight hair loss, help to have a restful sleep and awaken in an enlightened mood ready to take on the day.


Clary Sage has Antibacterial Properties

Clary Sage is also a great Antibacterial – Diluted Clary Sage oil was found to be effective against several bacterial strains.

Should you have a difficult to treat wound from a burn, diabetes or surgery – try Clary Sage diluted with an oil of your choice. Apply to the wound a couple times a day. Wounds usually will not become septic should Clary Sage be applied to them topically. Its antiseptic qualities can protect the body during surgical recovery and in all types of wounds

that are typically hot spots for infections.

Clary Sage Lowers Blood Sugar

In humans, sage leaf extract has been shown to lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity with a similar effect as rosiglitazone, an anti-diabetes drug.

Stimulates Sexual Desire

Want to increase performance and interest in sexual activities? Clary Sage is well-known as an aphrodisiac. It is very effective in getting you warmed up to someone and to help you overcome psychological problems. It has been known to be equally effective for both men and women.

Fights Depression

Clary sage oil can boost mental strength by boosting self-esteem, confidence, and to give the sense of hope. Do you feel your career has failed? are you insecure? Lonely? Has the death of a friend or loved one got you down? Diffuse Clary Sage into the room and let the anxiety and depression you are feeling fade away. Put 6 or 7 drops in a hot bath and let the day’s troubles and worries fade away. Give yourself a bit of relaxation time – give yourself time to help yourself heal and feel a little more able to face the world.

Supports Brain and Memory

Sage can help support your brain and memory in several ways. It is a great way to give your memory a boost. Diffuse it in the room or mix with a carrier oil and apply to the back of the neck or even to the bottom of your feet. You will be amazed at how focused you can be.

Clary Sage can calm down and reduce convulsions, whether they are epileptic or caused from a nervous disorder. Clary Sage essential oil can act as a sedative and can bring peace of mind. The oil is useful in the treatment of spasms and muscle cramps. It relaxes the nerve impulses which in turn does not allow spasms to occur.

Test tube studies have shown Sage extracts not only suppress the growth of cancer cells but also stimulate cell death. Including those of the mouth, colon, liver, cervix, breast, skin and kidney.

  1. Sage has long been valued in traditional medicine. It has been used to treat a wide range of ailments including coughs, asthma, bronchitis, angina, inflammation, depression, digestive and circulation disorders as well as other diseases in communities across the globe. As such it looks to be a very good and natural medicine.

    As far as I am concerned, I have only read very good reviews for sage and clearly, sage oil appears safe for use,  even though the FDA does not regulate essential oils. I will keep this in mind.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Jerry,  I like your comments and I totally agree.  After I wrote this article I went right out and bought some Clary Sage.  My husband needs it since he is having trouble with infections after surgery.  I appreciate your time.  Thank You


  2. Hi Connie. Thank you for very interesting article. I love essential oils but sometimes its difficult to choose good one with so many options on market. To be fair I haven’t heard before about Clary Sega products but looking on your review this is something I would definitely want to try.

      I agree on there being so many to choose from.  I just recently learned about Clary Sage also and all it’s benefits.  Anyone can stick by the Lavender, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Lemon, and Tea Tree for the majority of what ails you and for the wonderful scents each give off in a diffuser.  There are so many others and I will be going over all of them.  Feel free to click on https://varrscreativeendeavors…  to get a printable PDF with all the oils and their benefits.  Thank You


  3. I always stayed away from essentials oils because of safety precautions and health issues but recently my medic has advised me to try out essential oils as my depression level since the pandemic is increasing each day. Am still skeptical about using essential oils and since you seem to be an expert at this I would like to ask if they are really safe so I can try some. Am really concerned about the products I use.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      I am not in the medical profession.  Since your medic advised you – I would talk to the medic and ask which oils would be recommended.  Try the oil in a small amount at first to see how your body reacts to it.  My personal experience with essential oils has been nothing but wonderful.  No negative reactions.  For depression people use a peppermint and Ylang Ylang mixture that is added to Coconut Oil or another similar oil.  Thank You for taking the time to comment here and Enjoy Each Day. 

  4. Quite an interesting post you have on essential oils. I know they are quite popular to use, and I have some that I use as well. I frequently use tea tree oil to help in the healing process of small wounds or sores. I have used citrus in cleaning. I particularly found it very useful in the laundry. I made homemade soap, as well as homemade dryer sheets. The clothes came out smelling very clean.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Great to hear you are using Essential Oils in your everyday routine.  There are so many different oils with great properties.  Check out my Essential Oil Guide – You can find the page for it at the top of my website.  I make soaps and lotions and bath bombs and many cleaning solutions.  Totally enjoy how the oils work and make the place smell wonderful. 


  5. The first time I came across Clary Sage was because I wanted to relieves cramps. And now that I have been researching more, I see that it has so many more benefits that I will end up purchasing it not because of my original requirement, but because of all the aditional things I’ve learned. Thank you!

  7. I’ve never used sage essential oils before but after reading this I’m going to add to my collection. I absolutely love and believe in essential oils for healing any condition our body may have. With nature in our corner we cannot go wrong!

    Thank you for sharing this valuable content about sage oil I will be doing the same

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Thank You for stopping by and for the nice comment.  Quite a few people have contacted me about the Clary Sage as being an oil they had not thought much about.  I am happy to bring it out on stage and show it off a bit.  🙂  Take Care. 


  8. I love your article on clary sage essential oil. I use it personally for my hair to make it grow. However, I never knew that it was also useful for depression. I will also try it in a bath to see how it is going… Clary sage has been very helpful for my hair as I noticed some growth during the past month. My hair was also fuller after 3 months of regular use. THanks for sharing.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Hi, That’s awesome!  Keep using it – It’s a great oil. Take Care

  9. This seems very beneficial for woman, just for the fighting certain cancer benefits, let alone every thing else it provides.

    I use sage on my food a lot for the benefits it provides with certain ailments in general. One question what are safety concerns if ingested not that that’s a thing just curious in case someone wanted know do to having little ones running around their house.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Good thought – I never recommend to anyone taking essential oils orally unless they have done their research on it and consulted their doctor. Some people do put a drop or two drops of Clary Sage in their tea to use to calm down and to create balance.   And it is of course highly recommended to keep all such things out of reach of little ones. Since Clary Sage can promote sleep I would get whomever took this too much to a hospital right away.  Call 911.  I am not a medical professional.

  10. Hi Connie and thank you for your article on the Clary Sage essential oils. I had never heard of this previously and I am amazed at all the benefits of the Clary Sage essential oil. There are many on the market nowadays and the choice is hard to make. The details you have supplied actually enable the reader to make an informed decision on this product. It is encouraging to see that from nature’s plants we can extract the beneficial ingredients through science today, as our ancestors used herbs for healing and soothing without having the advanced knowledge we have.

    1. Connie Varricchio

      Thank You – Sometimes I wonder who really has/had the “advanced knowledge”  ?  🙂
