If you have read my prior blog posts, you may have seen me mention Clary Sage. It is one of my must haves when it comes to balancing hormones. Not only does it have properties to help women going through menopause, it also helps women who are still menstruating.
Clary Sage acts as a natural antidepressant and reduces stress, which is probably why I love inhaling the scent from the bottle every time I open it. It also gets added to one of my diffusers on a regular bases. The scent just makes me happy!
Clary Sage has also been shown to lower blood pressure. I have a 24-year old daughter with high blood pressure so this is an oil that she uses daily.
Clary Sage contains sclareol so studies have shown that it mimics the effects of estrogen. What does that mean? For women going through menopause Clary Sage can help reduce and/or eliminate those dreaded hot flashes. It can also help increase libido and help with natural lubrication. Unfortunately, both libido and natural lubrication decrease with menopause.
Clary Sage also contains anti-inflammatory properties so can also help reduce painful menstrual cramps. It’s basically pretty awesome for providing overall uterine health!
Finally, Clary Sage contains antibacterial properties so is good for rashes and other fungal infections. It also does wonders for helping eliminate the razor bumps women typically get from shaving the bikini area. Simply combine 10 drops each of Clary Sage, Lavender and Frankincense essential oils to a roller bottle and top off with Jojoba oil. Apply to your bikini area after shaving, and then reapply 1-2 times each day. This will not only help with razor bumps, it will also help your body with natural lubrication since you are applying it “down there”.
If you haven’t tried Clary Sage as a natural supplement to balance your hormones, you should.
