Wonderful Clary Sage

Wonderful Clary Sage

I had read a lot about this essential oil, and the truth is that I really wanted to try it.

For its incredible properties, this oil is especially suitable for women, it has a heady and powerful perfume, which by the way I love !

It is used to treat gynecological problems. It helps restore female hormonal imbalances, painful periods, etc. It is used to relieve symptoms related to menopause (hot flashes, mood swings, sleep disorders etc …).

It helps to level the production of estrogen in the body. Because many health problems, from estrogen-based cancers to infertility, are caused by estrogen excess in our bodies, Salvia Sclarea is especially good at balancing hormones in women. It is also attributed aphrodisiac properties … it increases the libido and can even help to treat psychological problems related to the loss of sexual desire and impotence.

The essential oil of Clary Sage calms the nervous system and it is relaxing, I use it just before going to sleep since it favors sleep, it helps to release mental and muscular tensions. It can help people in periods of stress and anxiety. It also helps to harmonize emotions.

It also helps treat the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, regulates blood pressure, helps treat respiratory diseases and relaxes the bronchial passages of people with asthma.
