Do you struggle with hormonal fluctuation during your monthly period or with menopause? Hormones can wreak havoc on your emotions and bodily functions. Fortunately, there?s clary sage.
Regularly used for women’s health issues, clary sage offers a number of health benefits, especially those involving hormone balance. For instance, the oil possesses natural properties that help regulate issues associated with menstruation. This is because the oil has a high content of linalyl acetate, which is a member of the ester group.
The oil supplies helps relieve nervous tension and is a fantastic skin support and soothing agent. Clary sage’s ability to support feminine discomfort, along with its natural hormone-balancing properties, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you need to lighten the mood and support fluctuation.
To calm menstrual discomfort, put 3-4 drops clary sage on the lower abdomen. Massage gently into the stomach. Mix a couple drops each of clary sage and Roman chamomile in your bathwater for a calming and stress-relieving bath.
For hair and scalp health, put 1-2 drops into your daily dose of shampoo. You can also use clary sage aromatically to relax and improve sleep. Lastly, you can apply clary sage topically to support skin health. Simply rub 1-2 drops softly over the affected area.
