Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) is a biennial herbaceous perennial plant of the Lamiaceae family (also known as the mint family), native to Europe and Western Asia. It is considered an aromatic plant and widely used in many different aspects, including culinary use with herbs like basil, mint, rosemary etc.
Chemical families: Lamiaceae
This herb is widely cultivated throughout the temperate regions of the world, but the largest clary sage oil producing country by far, is Russia. Other countries currently exporting the oil include Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Ukraine, United Kingdom and USA.
Many connoisseurs believe the English and French clary sage oils are the finest, although admittedly they are usually the most expensive due to the cost of labour.
The flowers and leaves of clary sage are collected at the end of blooming when the level of volatile oil in the plant is at its highest. The cutting and bundling usually takes place during the afternoon at which time the level of oil is at its daily peak unless it is too hot and sunny, raining or foggy; heat vaporizes the oil and excess humidity lowers the yield.
One of the top benefits of Clary Sage Essential oil is definitely its mood-boosting and stress-reducing abilities. Add 8 to 10 drops in a diffuser or burner for the ultimate aromatherapy session.
