Clary Sage Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Salvia Sclarea
Clary Sage is a short biennial or perennial herb that grows up to 1 meter in height (approximately 3 feet). It has large, hairy leaves with small bluish-purple flowers. The name is derived from the Latin word claris for 'clear' and by the Middle Ages it was known as Oculus Christi or the Eye of Christ. During the sixteenth century it was used in England as a replacement for hops when brewing beer.
Clary Sage Essential Oil has a mild earthy, fruity and floral aroma that is also slightly herbaceous.
