Clary Sage (Salvia scalrea)
For hair: It is known to cleanse greasy hair as it helps control excessive oil secretions. It is very effective in treating dandruff, dry skin, dry hair. When used as a scalp massage, clary sage oil encourages hair growth, and minimizes hair loss. It can also coat the hair shaft, and improve shine. This is a beneficial oil to be added to your henna and herbal hair recipe.
Other uses: Clary Sage oil is viewed by aromatherapists as an antidepressant, antispasmodic, deodorant, emmenagogue, hypotensive, nervine, sedative, tonic and uterine. It is well known for providing a euphoric action, for balancing uterine issues and there is also some documentation of its effectiveness in helping to relax the spasms of asthma. This oil promotes the regeneration of skin cells, helping to ward off wrinkles and keep skin looking healthy and youthful. It also improves acne and seborrhea.
This oil is NOT to be used during pregnancy. This is a pure essential oil and should be diluted when used, and not used directly on the skin. Dilute with your favorite base oil (such as a hair oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, etc.).

Like a previous reviewer, I add this to my camellia oil at night for my face. I've also used it as a deodorant (on an off day) and I was pleased that I did not have to re-apply it. I bought the 10 ml and it's almost gone in a couple of weeks! I will be buying the 30 ml next time.
I love the smell!

I brought this because it sounded nice ans I really don't like the smell of henna. I didn't end up adding up to my henna mix but I do use it with my coconut oil for my skin. I'm also suffering from athletes foot and read that this was anti-fungal. I love it so far.

I have started a new skincare regimen which includes cleansing with bergamot shampoo bar and following that up with a dime sized amount of camellia oil mixed with 2 to 3 drops of clary sage. Within the first week my skin has cleared up (including black heads which are disappearing). I wake up in the morning and my skin feels tight and smooth. The only negative thing I will say is that although my skin feels soft and smooth I have noticed that it seems to be a bit flaky in some spots. It seems like I need a good exfoliant along with this regimen. Maybe I'm using too much clary sage? I don't know. But overall I love it! And it smells amazing!
