Clary sage essential oil has traditionally been used as an eye cleanser. It is said to help improve vision health, including brighten eyes and protect vision loss due to premature aging. We are not eye experts, nor are we trained in how to create an eye wash so we do not have a recommendation for this type of product, but it is pretty interesting!
Clary sage essential oil can be used to help fight depression. Add clary sage essential oil to a diffuser blend or to a hand cream or lotion that can be used daily to help fight depression and anxiety. Blend clary sage with rose or neroli or bergamot to create an uplifting, light blend.
Clary sage is an excellent essential oil to use in acne fighting products. Clary sage has a very strong anti-bacterial component to it and it has linalyl acetate which helps to regulate sebum production, so include clary sage in your acne facial oil cleanser, serum, body wash, or lotion. Blend with oils such as organic extra virgin coconut, organic sea buckthorn, organic pomegranate and organic jojoba oil to a make an acne fighting cream!
Wound healing salve- clary sage has strong antiseptic qualities, so add into your salve or ointment to be applied topically to wounds like scars, burns, scrapes, bug bites, fungal infections and more.
Clary sage essential oil will blend nicely with lemon, lime, orange, bergamot, lavender, pine, juniper, and frankincense.
Do not apply directly to skin. Most essential oils are not designed to be applied directly, rather they are designed to be mixed with a carrier oil such as our organic sunflower or organic jojoba oils. Always perform a small patch test when applying to skin.
Do not take internally unless you are licensed to apply them as such.
