Common Sage Essential Oil (Dalmatian Sage Essential Oil)

Sage

Essential oil that is steam distilled specifically from the plant Salvia officinalis is referred to by several common names including Common Sage, and Dalmatian Sage. Typically, when someone simply refers to Sage Essential Oil (as I will continue to do so within this profile), he/she generally is referring to the oil of Salvia officinalis, the oil that is profiled here. However, it's always best to verify by confirming the botanical name of the specific "sage" essential oil that you are working with or considering for purchase. Greek Sage, Spanish Sage and Clary Sage essential oils are also available, and the composition and safety guidelines for each does vary.

Aromatically, Sage Essential Oil possesses an herbaceous, fruity, fresh, camphorous aroma that blends well with essential oils in the citrus, spice, mint, wood and herbaceous families.

Sage Essential Oil contains approximately 25-50% thujone, a ketone that requires greater care and more limited use. Refer to the Safety Information section below for more information.

High thujone content. Use sparingly and with extreme caution. Spanish Sage Essential Oil is somewhat safer to work with. Tisserand and Young warn of the possibility of neurotoxicity. Avoid Sage Oil in pregnancy and breastfeeding. They recommend a dermal maximum of 0.4%. Reading Tisserand and Young's full profile is recommended.

Important Information About the Profiles

The essential oil information provided on AromaWeb is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The oil photos are intended to represent the typical and approximate color of each essential oil. However, oil color can vary based on harvesting, distillation and other factors. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information

Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
